    NSFF Chilwell Paperweight.

    I bought this paperweight recently, i just liked it, I thought I would share some images on here. The former NSFF is well documented, and I believe there is at least one book available on it.

    The brass plate on the top is engraved " The wood for this paperweight was from the floor of building 157 COD Chilwell, a former store shed of the NSFF, built in 1915"

    The King's crown side of the plaque reads : National Shell Filling Factory Chilwell The VC Factory 1915 1918.
    The Queen's crown side of the plaque reads : Central Ordnance Depot Chilwell RAOC 1936 1982.
