TitlePhotograph of a war memorial plaque for the Grand Independent Order of Loyal Caledonian Corks (GIOLCC)
DescriptionThe plaque comprised a roll of honour listing the names of 41 members of the Solihull Lodge (No. 506) of the GIOLCC who served in the First World War, and the names of six members who died. The 'Corks' was a friendly, sick and dividend society that was established in Birmingham in 1884 and was dissolved in May 1971. At the time of its dissolution, the Solihull Lodge met at the Gardeners' Arms, High Street, Solihull.
