Shell production for World War 2 in 24F shop at Swindon Works, 1942

An image of the shell production line in 24F Shop showing view of the workshop space for shell inspection during World War 2. Thousands of shells are stacked against the brick walls ready to be dealt with. More are lined up on the workbenches. In this image the women are working side by side with their male counterparts. Three men can be seen in this photograph, with the women outnumbering the men by at least five to one. The man in the centre of the image wearing a shirt and tie and a white apron was probably the foreman
