The Gunsmith has always been a solid part of the village, it came to boreham in 1980 untilzing the old GPO building. Whilst still at school Mr Frank Poole worked at Leech & Sons evenings & weekends. From then on he worked there full time as a trainee.
Wanting to be further educated in the craft, Frank joined Holland & Holland until he was called up. On his return to New Bond Street he became in charge of the workshops.
Years later Holland & Holland joined another company, the shop was based in Bruton street and Frank joined the factory. Many years later he returned to Leech & Sons in Tindal Street, Chelmsford.
David Poole joined his father later on after training with an engineering company as a fully trained apprentice where he also became apprentice of the year. David spent 10 years in the territorial army as the armourer and came back to Leech & Sons to work with his father. It may surprise you to know that Frank knew and spent time with the last Mr Leech and Mr Holland.
