  • Excerpt from The Iron and Steel Industry of the United Kingdom Under War Conditions: A Record of the Work of the Iron and Steel Production Department of the Ministry of Munitions It is a remarkable tribute to the latent organising power of the nation that, under the adverse conditions of a great war, it should have been possible to raise the steel production of the country to the highest point it has ever reached in the history of the industry.

    Under the stress of necessity, raw materials, that had been allowed to lie dormant in this country, were rapidly developed and brought to the producing stage. Ironstone in Oxfordshire, coking coal in Scotland, ganister for silica-bricks, moulding sands for foundry work, and refractory sands for open-hearth furnace bottoms, are instances in point.
