|In 1926 came the General
Strike, and just as they were for the rest of the country, times were
hard for the people of Shelton. After the strike had been resolved, and
things got back to normal iton and steel making went on for a further
decade before European politics reached crisis point once more, and in
1939 the World was thrown into the Second World War.
Once again Shelton played its part in the supply of steel for military use. One example of this was the production of special quality shell steel in billet form; as the name suggests, the material was then used for making shells.
