DEVELOPMENT OF THE MILLS WOVEN CARTRIDGE BELT 1877 1956:  This is a reprint of the history of the Mills Woven Cartridge Belt Company, written in the mid-20th Century by the managing director of The Mills Equipment Co. Ltd., located in London, England.  This 72 page paper bound monograph provides the detailed history of the development of the Mills Woven equipment from the US Army Mills Cartridge Belts through the equipment used by the soldiers of the British Empire during World War Two and in the decade beyond.  While primarily focused on British equipment, the text does provide considerable insight as to how the various pieces of equipment were determined to be necessary, designed and produced.  The booklet features a considerable number of period photographs and a few sample patent drawings.   

This copy is ex libris from the R. Stephen Dorsey research library and it is in very good condition, showing no wear, but with some neatly yellow highlighted portions of the text.  A great little reference which is no longer in print.  (0343)  $20
