Fire Brigade - a Memory of Willenhall.

Although I have never lived in Willenhall during the late 1960s I was stationed there for three years at the old fire station which I believe is now used as a library. I remember using the old swimming baths at the rear for training purposes when it was not in use. There was two fire engines one of which was used by part time fireman and the other was used by full time. When I first stationed there it was still part of the Staffordshire brigade until the boundry changes when we came under Walsall.I remember Willenhall being very much a industrial area with lots of terraced type housing with chimney fires being very common
