The numbers of pensionable men who were retired or discharged from the ordnance factories, including Waltham and Enfield, before reaching the age of 60 years during the years, 1925, 1926 and 1927 were two, seven and two, respectively. Of these nine received pensions, one a gratuity, and in one case the man's service terminated through his breach of agreement during the general strike.
