Gordon L. Routledge.£7.95 + £1.50 p&p.

This interesting book tells the story about the Greatest Munitions Factory on Earth. Gordon explains  in details what really happened during those dark days of 1915 to 1918 at H. M. Factory, Gretna. The factory stretched from Dornock, a small community to the west of the A75 Euro Route; following the Solway Firth shore line on through Eastriggs and Gretna and across the Border into Longtown, a distance of nine miles. 30,000 people from across the Commonwealth worked at the factory, with its cordite instrumental in the Allies' victory at the conclusion of the First World War. Gordon at his finest! This book tells a real life story of many young women working in munitions at Gretna during World War 1.
