Blue Plaque

Blue Plaque to the 6888th African American Postal Battalion WW2

In February 1945, 800 African American women from the 6888th postal Battalion were posted to KEHS, Edgbaston, Birmingham to sort backlogged mail. The Battalion has a unique place in history located right here in the city. We have chosen to honour them with the installation of Blue Plaque in the city.
