Does it talk about Hussey's relationship with Ogden Smith's? OWD
Henry Hugh Hussey, son of Henry Joseph, came back from his WWI commissioned service with the Royal Flying Corps (where he was involved in experimental aircraft weaponry) in Feb 1919 and immediately took up working with the immaculately turned out Claude Harrison, scion of the Cogswell & Harrison family. He must have gathered his tools and workmen around him rapidly, for the first Harrison & Hussey guns went to the London Proof House in July 1919.
However, Harry, as he was known, did not appear to like working with Claude and he went off to join Ogden Smiths in 1921, having made up some 150 guns. Harrison & Hussey continued making guns after Harry left, still to a very high standard, under the direction of Claude, RH (William) Howe and actioner Bob Pillar, up until Claude's death in 1928 and the acquisition of the business by Grant & Lang in 1930.
Meanwhile, Harry seems to have enjoyed being a part of what had become Ogden Smiths & Hussey Ltd, remaining there up until his early death aged 49 of a brain tumour in July 1929. Harry always turned out guns of the highest standard, continuing to use the Imperial Ejector name first used by his father for his best guns.
Gun numbers were in the 10##, 30##, 40##, 50## and 60## series.In addition to best guns, BLE, U/O, double rifle and single barrel trap guns were turned out, never in large numbers though.
It can be assumed that the Ogden Smiths fishing business carried on alongside the gunmaking, as they were long established beforehand and carried on after Harry's death as Ogden Smiths selling fishing gear until the business closed sometime after WWII, I believe.
