On today's tour the great great granddaughter of one of the ladies pictured here came along and we were able to tell the family:

They are Canaries they are in the Quick Fire Cartridge Factory no4. BL section which means they are loading canvas cartridge bags for big guns above 6inch. Canvas cartridge bags were used up to 16 inch guns. QF means breach loading. Anything called a pounder ie 18 pdr, 13 pdr had a brass qf cartridge case. Only yhe 4.5inch howitzer, in inches had a brass case.

The cartridge filling places were in Thamesmead so if it went bang it wasn't the end of Woolwich.

The cordite, string dipped in nitroglycerene, was made at Waltham Abbey then shipped down by canal.

The triangular badge in the picture is a cardboard representation of the lapel badge the ladies wore to show they were on war work. The men wore the same so they didn't get white feathers from ladies as they were not in uniform.
