|Rules were strict in an ammunition factory!|
The front page notes that "During the period of the War, employees are engaged in the understanding that they agree to contribute at the standard weekly rate in the Kynoch War Fund for the maintenance of Highbury Hospital for Wounded Soldiers". I'm uncertain which was is being referred to here, as the Second Boer War only began 11th October 1899; it seems likely that this was a general statement referring to what was expected during any conflict. Perhaps this was a reaction from Kynoch's to criticism about their manufacture of, literally, the ammunition of war.
Number 4 seems obvious! "No workpeople shall smoke within the Factory", but it seems a shame that number 9 disallowed, as often the clothing clubs were a useful way for the poor to save up for essential items. They would pay a little into the club each week, and then when something was needed they could get the items required.
Nice to see that some thought to the safety of the workers is put into the rules with numbers 15, 16 & 17!
And there we have it......fancy a job at Kynoch's?
