Frank Whittle Documents

Sir Frank Whittle

Notes by WIAS member Paul Waller

Below is a a transcription of some material in a file from the G.E.C. assembled/created for the visit by Sir Frank to the Mill Road factory in 1987. Paul has also supplied some Whittle related images which are displayed below.

At that time the factory archive seems to have been intact, but files removed for reference at that time were later sold openly at public auction. They were bought by or donated to Peterhouse College and every page has been scanned and put online. Over 400 documents are freely available to view at the link below.
