Today, on the eve of the commemorative weekend to mark the 80th anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic, we take a moment to remember the people who made it all happen.
Over the past few weeks, Stone Marine Group have highlighted the wartime contribution of J. Stone & Co. Ltd and Manganese Bronze & Brass Co. Ltd to ships and aircraft engaged in the Battle of the Atlantic and World War Two.
From our archives, when reviewing the records & documentation, we see that whatever the individual difficulties may have been for those working in the factories & foundries, laboratories, design & planning offices, ARP & LDV units, none of them ever viewed their war contribution as being comparable to those fighting on land, sea or air.
