7mm BROADWAY TRUST COMPANY

This was developed by Sir Dennis Burney of ICI, and the Broadway Trust Company was a cover jointly owned by Sir Dennis, ICI and the Ministry of Supply. The cartridge was designed to fire in a recoilless rifle and used extremely long projectiles. There were a number of recoilless weapon developments ranging from small arms to artillery. The company existed from October 1943 to 1948.

These specimens are reproductions for collectors. The original cartridges are very rare.

This is an original bullet for the Broadway Trust cartridge
