Administrative / Biographical History

Wilkinson Sword Limited moved the manufacture of swords and bayonets from their factory at Chelsea to new premises in Southfield Road, Acton, in 1903. During the First World War, this factory was engaged solely in the production of armaments; more than two and a quarter million bayonets were made between 1914 and 1918. The Acton sword factory closed, and sword production ceased on 15 September 2005
