Shortstown Heritage

Shorts sport 1918b

There does not appear to be any records of Shorts employees nor indeed Shortstown residents in these early years so we cannot be sure if any of the individuals named lived in Shortstown.

If anyone recognises any names mentioned please get in touch. Some are familiar and do crop up in later registers from 1925 onwards such as J Holland, W King, C M Pugh but could be different individuals. Others may have originally come from Rochester where Shorts were based.

As for 'man of the match' Captain P Burke can anyone tell us who he was and what his connection to airships was? Please make contact if you can help. Many thanks.
