Thanks for the tip Rick, my mother worked at Lucas's all through the war, I think that they made ammunition at that time. Her dad, John Sheldon, was killed in WW I on the Somme and her husband, Edwin Webb, was killed at El Alamein and she brought us 5 kids up on her own. So you could say this woman did her "bit" for our country, don't you think?

Lucas's, Birmingham, is known world wide.
