Regarding Question on TeaHouse
Hi Offspring227, I saw your question on Teahouse and wondered whether you have been answered. Yes, you can send a talk on User talk page to ask them questions about certain articles. But a better way is to use the talk page of the article, there's a "talk" tab on the top left corner of every article. This way is better because user that is editing the article can see your post and discuss together. Hope it helps!!! Happy editing ;)
P/S: You can always removed this post anytime you want to save some space on your talk page --Vaktug (talk) 08:06, 28 March 2012 (UTC) Thanks 4 that!Offfspring227 (talk) 09:11, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 2012–13 Ryobi One-Day Cup, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Moses Henriques (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Albion Explosives, etc
Hi Offfspring227. Sorry for the delay in supplying any details.
The main source I'm using here is "Imperial Chemical Industries A History: Volume 1: The Forerunners 1870-1926 & Volume 2: The first Quarter-century 1915-1962", W.F Reader, Oxford University Press, (1970, first volume & 1974, second volume).
In Melbourne, the German company Krebs & co. negotiated a licence to manufacture 'Lithofacteur' near Melbourne and in March 1874 it set up the Australian Lithofacteur Company (Krebs Patent) Ltd. In 1888 it became the Australian Explosives & Chemical Company Ltd (registered in London). They had a factory at Deer Park, Melbourne, which was bought in 1898 by Nobel-Dynamite Trust, an alliance of Nobel's Explosives, in Glasgow, and four German companies, headed by the German Nobel company: Dynamit AG of Hamburg. As a consequence of the First World War, the Nobel-Dynamite Trust was dismantled to split British and German assets. British interests went to Nobel's Explosives, Glasgow. Australia is not mentioned by name here or perhaps I've missed it), but I think it went to Nobel's Explosives. Pyrotec (talk) 15:13, 1 December 2013 (UTC)
Nobel's Explosives was to become one of the four constituents of Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI). In 1927, ICI in Australia began to enter into partnerships with local interests (as it had done in Canada and South Africa) and Nobel's had already transferred its Australian interests to Nobel (Australia). ICI owed three factories near Melbourne, at Dear Park, Footscray and Spotswood. Deer Park made explosives and spent acid was used to make fertilisers; Footscray made sporting cartridges and Spotswood made fuses.
At the end of October, I had a meeting at The National Archives and I had half an hour to spare, so I had a look at a copy of Studies of Overseas Supply: (History of the Second World War, United Kingdom Civil Series), Hall & Wrigley, in the library. There was not very much at all in it on this topic. However, it did say that it was decided that Australia should set up an organisation like the Royal Ordnance Factories, to supply the southern hemisphere with ammunition. There were three government factories in production. Small arms ammunition was made at Footscray, Victoria; there was an ordnance / explosives / filling factory at Maribyrnong, Melbourne; and a small arms factory at Lithgow. The National Archives holds most the raw information (in the form of type written pages produced locally at the factories / plant concerned) used to write these official histories. I did not have time to look to see if it exists for this volume, but the raw data might be more extensive than the book itself.
