Birmingham Cartridge Manufacturers

$69.00
Overview
An in-depth review of the former munitions companies in Birmingham and a fascinating insight into the social history of its workforce. The Birmingham Cartridge Manufacturers covers both shotgun cartridge and metallic cartridge production across a huge range of products giving examples of their related patents and headstamps. It is profusely illustrated with cartridge photographs together with those of the staff and their former workplaces.

The author traces the rise and fall of these companies as they sought to match the demands of the day, often fuelled by both home and overseas wars and their diversification into other areas of production. The many companies covered by the book include BSA, Westley Richards, Kynoch, WW Greener and The Midland Gun Company, whose former ammunition production is now all but forgotten.
