Moorside- a Wartime Miracle

Gordon L. Routledge

£10.00

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, when visiting as a war correspondent, called Gretna and Eastriggs “the Miracle Towns.” In his newspaper article, for reasons of security, he referred to H.M. Factory Gretna as ‘Moorside’, hence the title of this book.

For a factory of this magnitude to be producing Cordite within a year of its inception was indeed a miracle in itself and by reaching its maximum output of 800 tons per week by 1917b surpassed all expectations.
