No. 24F shop, Swindon Works, undergoing war time alterations in 1941

This image, taken in September 1941, shows the alterations taking place in 24F Shop to accommodate the new shell production for the Ministry of Supply. In most instances the new production lines were squeezed into existing workshops at Swindon and normal work carried on. 24 Shop, on the Carriage and Wagon side of the Works, was fitted out with two production lines for 25-pounder shells. The refurbishment was quite a feat and required the excavation of new foundations for heavy machinery and furnaces
