The Royal Ordnance Factory at Hayes: The Story of a World War II Gun and Tank Factory at Hayes in the London Borough of Hillingdon

2011

Abstract

This is the fascinating story of how ROF Hayes, a World War II tank and gun factory in west London, played its part in the war effort. Using wartime documents, specially commissioned architectural photographs and the recollections of some of the factory’s workers, this book highlights the important contribution of the Royal Ordnance Factories. It shows how the workers of ROF Hayes helped to win the Battle of Normandy in 1944 with the Sherman Firefly tank. Most unusually, all the wartime buildings at ROF Hayes survived intact. Today, it has become ProLogis Park Heathrow, a major international freight and cargo hub.
