This product is currently sold out.

Shown here is much of the work undertaken by Bassett-Lowke for British governments during bot the First and Second World Wars.

In both wars much of this involved the making of ship recognition models for training puposes, but in WW11 models made included examples of temporary bridges, showing how they were erected and elements of the Mulberrry Harbours, plus many other items.

A fascinating illustration of the way models, and model engineers, helped win both wars with their skills.

95 page paperback, illustrated with 78 mainly B&W photographs.
