Old Intermedians War Memorial



©Wolverhampton Express & Star Newspaper.

The War Memorial used to be displayed in the Adult Education Service in Old Hall Street. It was taken down when the building was refurbished and has not been put back as it did not "fit in" with it's surroundings.

Mr Newey in 1948 as a student attending the Intermediate School helped to design and build the memorial with a teacher and fellow pupils. Mr Newey campaigned to have the memorial put back in it's rightful place and succeeded in having the Memorial placed in the Civic Centre.
