Boulton Paul Aircraft
This book records the aeronautical activities of this Norfolk-based company, with a brief history of its origins by William Moore in 1797, and its work during the First World War. It pioneered metal construction after the war and produced parts for the R-101 airship. As Boulton Paul Aircraft Ltd at Wolverhampton, the Defiant was conceived, and its gun turrets would defend RAF bombers during WWII.
