Today was a good day, I didn’t have to use my Webley Self-Extracting Revolver

It’s fair to say that The Birmingham Industrial History Society aren’t big fans of the Thinktank, but they’ve magnanimously sent out details of a lecture this Wednesday 7th November at 7pm on “The House of Webley – Gunmakersby Richard Milner”.

This well known local firearms manufacturer has long been of interest to engineering historians but research continues to expand our understanding of its activities and importance… many of the firearms produced by Webleys will be illustrated with some detail to set them in context.

The theatre entrance is on level G0 of the building, admission is free. Organised by The Newcomen Society (Midland Branch).
