    Mills Grenade Makers.

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for some help in a identifying some Mills grenade makers. I'm trying to put together a list for my own references. I have found many makers, but there are quite a few outstanding that I can't seem to find. Can anyone help?

    The makers initials that I'm looking to ID are;

    ADC,
    AB&S Ltd, (A Barrett & Sons ?)
    APDP, (Alloy Pressure Die Products, but where was the factory?)
    APX
    AS,
    BS, (British United Shoe Manufacturing Co. Ltd. ?)
    DD,
    E Ltd,
    EFCS
    FLc,
    FK,
    FPL, (Which i know is Flowform Plastics Ltd, did they make Mills?)
    GEW,
    HM Ltd,
    H&R Ltd,
    HSC, (Hudson Scott & Co ?)
    JWB, (J. Wilson Brown & Sons ?)
    L Ltd, (Lucy Ltd ?)
    LC&Co,
    MB&Co, (Metal Box Co. ?)
    MDS&Co,
    ME Ltd,
    NIC, (Wallop Industries ?)
    ORD,
    PB&Co, (Platt Bros & Co. ?)
    PDL,
    PRECA, Press Caps Ltd ?)
    PR&Co,
    PT&Co,
    RIVERBANK,
    SB&Co., (Seimens Brothers & Co. ?)
    SP&Co.,
    TL, (Taylor Lang & Co. ?)
    UEC,
    VG,
    VONO,
    WAD,
    WB, (Westinghouse Brake Co. ?)
    WALSAL,
    WE, (William Edgar ?)


    I also have a little bit of confusion over 'DFCo.'
    On this forum, a search comes up with Dudley Foundry and elsewhere is Derwent with the same 'DFCo' code. How are these two differentiated?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

    Best regards,

    Simon
