I can get this topic moving with the following link:- ... pic=3646.0

Half a dozen interesting pages including some copies of documents relating to the purchase of Shorts during the war.
fascinating stuff - and HMG doing it's usual to the aircraft industry...

Thank you Fred for the link which i found very interesting as i wasbrought up in the Medway Towns and well remember hanging around Shorts works and seeing them build Solents and the Shetland.
On the link there is an interesting film of the Short Mussel flying at the Medway regatta.
Also i might join the forum and see if i can contact old friends.

Thanks again, Roy.
