        Ministry of Munitions of War. H.M. Factory, Gretna. Description of Plant and Process.

      Dumfries: Printed for HMSO by J. Maxwell & Son, 1918 - Foolscap quarto (338 × 208 mm) Original maroon skiver, title gilt to the upper board within panel of swags in blind. Rubbed at the extremities, and neatly rebacked, contents clean and sound. Profusely illustrated with diagrams, plans and sketch-maps, many of them folding, some coloured, and a number of half-tone plates from photographs including extensive panoramas of the works and the cordite ranges. First and only edition. The massive factory site, which included the two purpose-built townships of Gretna and Eastriggs, was established as a response to the Shell Crisis of 1915. The plant's product was cordite - a smokeless propellant explosive comprised of a mixture of nitro-glycerine and nitro-cellulose, or gun cotton, and described by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle after a visit to the site as "The Devil's Porridge" - and within a year of commencing production it was turning out 800 tons a week, more than all the other factories in Britain combined. Two thirds of the close 17,000 workers were women. The site was closed at the end of the war, the buildings demolished, eventually being parcelled off into 700 lots and sold off in the 1920s. A remarkably detailed technical account of this vital contribution to victory in World War I, this copy that of Lord Moulton who was Director General of the Explosive Supply Department. Uncommon, just four copies recorded on OCLC.

        Typed Letter Signed

      1918, 1918 - SHAW, George Bernard. Typed Letter Signed concerning Sailing Ships and their numbers. A letter by Shaw, typed on his 10 Adelphi Terrace, W.C. letterhead to a S.H. Carter, Esq., Craghill, Ravenscar, Scarborough. 7th January 1918. Dear Sir I have not had a look at the docks since the war, to which thestatement in my article has of course no reference; but it is one of the standing surprises of the riverside in London, now that we have come to regard sailing craft as obsolete, to see the closely packed rows of old fashioned wooden sailing ships, most of them looking fresh from the builders' yards, moored there. It may not be literally true that an XVII century seamen [sic] would see more wooden ships today below London Bridge - even new ones- than he could have supposed the world to contain in his lifetime; but ifnot, the seamen of that day must have had robust imaginations. I daresay itis possible to find out what the wooden sailing tonnage is today; but I have not the necessary works of reference at hand here. The percentage of thetotal traffic carried in such ships must be much less; but this does not imply the number of the ships themselves is not much greater. Yours faithfully [signature:] G. Bernard Shaw Sheet has the watermark of MILLREVAN, Asprey, Bond Street, London. Vg. 1,500.00 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        American Expeditionary Forces Tank Corps Archive

      Fletcher, Private Robert G., Camp Colt, PA and France 1918 - This is a terrific grouping of World War I postal history from Private Robert G. Fletcher of Birmingham, Alabama that documents the birth of the U.S. Army's Armor Branch. Highlights of this collection of 16 postcards and covers with letters include two rare Treat 'Em Rough envelopes, one rare Treat 'Em Rough letterhead, one rare Tank Corps Camp Colt envelope, one rare AEF Christmas package mailing coupon, and two scarce American Red Cross 'postal' handstamps. Private Fletcher's dog tags are included as well. Fletcher was drafted in March of 1918, and by early May he had reported to Camp Colt, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania for training in the soon to be formed Tank Corps commanded by Major Dwight D. Eisenhower. Upon deployment, he was assigned to C Company, 302nd Tank Battalion, a unit equipped with heavy British Mark VI tanks. In France, the 302nd was stationed in Langres (APO 714) at the AEF's Tank Center commanded by Captain George S. Patton. Following the Meuse-Argonne offensive, Fletcher was reassigned to the 344th Tank Battalion, also stationed at Langres, which was equipped with light French Renault tanks. Censorship was apparently very strict in the Tank Corps as Fletcher's letters are mostly requests for additional mail from home and provide little insight into unit operations. Still, this collection of materials that date from the creation of the Tank Corps at Gettysburg through the Armistice is unique, and it is unlikely that any other similar assemblages exist.

George Patton had a sister, Anne, and was very close to his Aunt, whom he referred to as Aunt Nannie.
