T T Nethercoat And Co, The Quay, Burnham On Crouch, Essex

The Inspection Room at T T Nethercoat and Co's East Works in Burnham on Crouch, with seated men examining hundreds of rope and canvas ammunition buckets manufactured on site. Nethercoat and Co were chandlers and sailmakers by trade, but during the First World War their skills were turned to the war effort, in this photograph inspecting canvas and rope ammunition carriers. This photograph was commissioned by Nethercoat and Co. The Bedford Lemere daybook entry also records a reference to 'R Terrell & Company', but this company cannot be traced.
