Bramah Joseph Diplock
Pedrail Transport Company
Diplock founded the Pedrail Transport Company of Fulham which was, before World War I, the only British company to manufacture "caterpillar" continuous tracks. A demonstration of the system's ability to support a large load for trench warfare was made on 16 February 1915 to Winston Churchill, and may have been influential in the development of the tank.
