printed by HARRSION AND SONS, London, 1916

An original book of rules for the WW1 Ministry of Munitions ammunition factories. This concise booklet covered all the rules and safety precautions that a munitions worker was expected to follow. Failure to comply with the rules would lead to a worker being instantly dismissed, and possibly prosecuted. This edition was printed in December 1916, with pasted in amendments dated October 1917.

Ministry of Munitions: was created by the Munitions of War Act which was passed on 2 July 1915 to safeguard the supply of artillery munitions. Under the leadership of Liberal party politician David Lloyd George, the Ministry in its first year set up a system that dealt with labour disputes and fully mobilized Britain's capacity for a massive increase in the production of munitions. By 1918 the Ministry had a staff of 65,000 people, employing some 3 million workers in over 20,000 factories for the duration of the war.
