You can tell a builder from an archaeologist by the size of his trowel. Mine is a small one!

Hi Norwichpaul,
To get a feast of Drill Hall information & photos, get hold of Mike Osborne's book ' Always Ready ', published in 2006, ISBN no. 1 85818 509 2. A definitive tome on the history and development of the drill hall and a cracking read - !

Sheffield, Edmund Road Drill Hall 2010:

According to a local reference, the site was low lying and so the tower was built higher than usual to enable a direct line of site to other drill halls in the area to enable the relaying of messages by signalling (semaphore or lamps?) It opened in 1907.
