Talk by Mike Turpin
In World War I Britain quickly started to run out of munitions. This talk looks at the increased production following the 1915 Munitions Act and the social implications that followed. The talk focuses on the ‘Devil’s Porridge’ factory in Scotland and the Barnbow shell-filling facility here in Yorkshire.
Visitors are always welcome.
