An historical photograph, which remained as a unfavorable until now. This is the scene behind Chelmsford Railway station taken from Mill Road. It must have been a Tuesday Friday or Saturday, as these have been the days on which the Lodge bus service ran in from High Easter by means of Chignal Smealy and parked behind the Plough,the official terminus.. Previously a Bedford SBG, PAJ487 performed the service, but OOO298K was purchased as a replacement. (Ironically Lodges had to buy an identical coach to PAJ to be restored for publicity purposes) This dual objective 45 seater coach/ bus had been purchased new by GW Osborne and Sons, of Tollesbury,another renowned and now vanished bus and coach firm of Essex.
Behind the Ford Capri is the Machine Bakery of the Chelmsford Star Co-operative Society. To the proper, the former garage of the popular Rose Bros coach company, with their small office at 66a Duke Street on the corner of Victoria Road South. They were taken more than by Eastern National in 1956 .Their ghost sign survived till the demolition of the garage. I believe it was getting used as a maintenance depot by British Rail (??) The open auto park to the right for commuters has been replaced by a multi-storey version. Behind the camera, an elevated section of Mill Road went to the modest siding and buildings owned by a meat wholesale firm referred to as Spanjer – interestingly an initially Jewish name from London. The words Hygienic Bakery can be created out on the street side of the Co-op constructing.
As nicely as an express service to London Kings Cross, Rose Bros (Frank Hudson Rose and Douglas Joshua Rose) operated a service at weekends to Steeple Stone, ,by means of Purleigh Round Bush, where there were sailing clubs, caravan parks,shacks and the like. The return fare in 1947 was half-a-crown.

MK19 Grenade Machine Gun

Gives offensive and defensive Soldier assistance by means of tripod- or vehicle mounted grenade machine gun.

The MK19 Grenade Machine Gun supports the Soldier in offensive and defensive roles by delivering a heavy volume of precise and continuous firepower against enemy personnel and lightly armored vehicles. The MK19 can be mounted on a tripod or on numerous car platforms and is the principal suppressive weapon for combat assistance and combat service assistance units. The weapon can be employed to defend motor movements, assembly areas, and provide trains in bivouac.

The MK19 Grenade Machine Gun can defend against hovering rotary-wing aircraft, destroy lightly armored vehicles, fire on suspected enemy positions, and offer higher-volume fire into an engagement location and indirect fires from hidden positions. The program increases the capability of U.S. forces to defeat opposing armored, mechanized, and infantry forces with higher explosive, dual-purpose ammunition. The MK19’s point target efficient range is 1,500 meters and the maximum location target successful range is 2,212 meters, with a cyclic firing rate of around 350 rounds per minute.

A Most Ingenious Device

This is the interior of the Singer Sewing Machine shop on The Quay in Waterford. Great machines on show, and an engraving of the Singer Factory and a framed Russian Singer advertisement.

Gerry Ward kindly confirmed that the huge framed image of the factory is at Kilbowie Street, Clydebank in Scotland, with its gorgeous clock tower. No excuse for Singer workers who lived nearby to be late for work! Gerry also translated our Russian Poster which reads &quotКомпания Зингеръ Швейная машиъі&quot which implies &quotThe Singer Sewing Machine Business&quot.
