Archivistische beschrijving

Naam van de archiefvormer



John Shelley, manager, administrator and director of Kings Norton Ammunition Works, Woolwich Arsenal, Abbey Wood during the Great War, was also associated with the British government. Although the fonds contains some pre-World War I material, the majority of the documents consist of photographs and correspondence relating to Shelley's munitions factories and reflect his activities in the war effort. Of particular interest are the many poignant letters written with considerable effort by female employees to Shelley. Several of the photographs show the Ladies' Fire Brigade at practice.
