    Imperial Munitions Board Inspectors Handbook

    I picked up this handbook and the inspectors badge. I bought this so that I could put the information
    on the site for all to use. If any one is interested in the actual book and pin contact me (email) and you can have
    them for my cost. The Pin on Badge I suspect is very rare - (I would likely loose it !) The personal were
    civilian hence no military type insignia. The hand book has suffered some damage and I have done the best
    I can to bring out the details, perhaps some one else can get a bit more out of it.

    The Imperial Munitions Board, established November 1915 in Canada by the British Ministry of Munitions, with Canadian government approval. Headed by J.W. Flavelle, a prominent Toronto businessman, the board was responsible for letting contracts on behalf of the British government for the construction of war materials in Canada. It began to establish "national factories," which it owned outright, to produce munitions that private manufacturers were unable to turn out. Under IMB direction Canada produced a wide variety of war materiel including shells, ships, explosives and training planes. The IMB was dissolved in 1919.

    More pages, they tend to get out of order when I do this so I hope it will make sense !

    Or they just don't show up ~

    The rest of the 20 pages ~

    I don't know why when I add two pages at the end , one of them gets out of place ? But they are all here.

    Also the name of the Inspector and his home town.
    Hoping it is useful information.
