The Lads of Enfield Lock : 172 Years of Apprentice Training at the Royal Small Arms Factory, Enfield Hardback

Description

The Lads of Enfield Lock is a comprehensive and fascinating history of the apprenticeship scheme at Royal Small Arms Factory (RSAF) at Enfield Lock, Middlesex in 1816.

Compiled from authoritative sources, this story is a unique chronicle of apprentice training in a vital part of Great Britain's industry.

In the late-19th and early-20th centuries such activity was central to the country's achievement of world leadership in manufacturing and technology.

The book includes many original photographs together with reminiscences by some fifty ex-apprentices who served their time at RSAF between 1920 and 1987.
