    In the 90s I worked in Fulham and there was a young IT contractor who commuted from Doncaster. In a Cortina. The money was a big incentive at the time, I guess.

    Churchill letter to Dorman Long

    A lot of the 'Mulberry Harbour' components used for Normandy landings were made by DL. They also had a yard in London, where the US Embassy now stands, for fabrications using steel shipped from Teesside.
