From the Curator
We were asked what Elliott Bros did to support D-Day
• Short Bros Stirling aircraft were built at Rochester and converted aircraft flew as glider tugs and supply aircraft during the Allied invasion of Europe. We do have pictures of the Stirlings at Rochester but of course
that company never became part of BAE Systems.
• The Lewisham site of Elliott Bros made naval gunnery tables for the Royal Navy and this was a major product and success.(see Pamphlets)
• The type 274 and type 275 radar sets out of Elliott Bros Borehamwood were almost certainly used.
The Collection and Archive of the late Ron Howard has now been shipped from Australia and should be here in July.
