Schermuly Pistol Rocket Apparatus Ltd

Many years ago the Society was given an old and somewhat tatty album showing photographs of the early years of the Schermuly company when William Schermuly and his sons were demonstrating their revolutionary equipment to the Board of Trade, Members of Parliament and leading shipping companies. We have now downloaded these evocative pictures and they can be seen, together with a brief history, in the section headed Misc. Studies.

During the Second World War the factory employed over 1000 people but it closed in 1981 and today the site is now Becket Wood.
