The Articles in Question are “The Fourth & Final G. W. H. Story,” by Peter White - with the assistance of many, IAA Journal Issue 440, Nov./Dec. 2004, pp 6 - 10, which was copied directly, with authorization, from the original artical of the same title published in The Australian Cartridge Collector’s Association Bulletin Number 82, from the year 2000, pp 4-8.
The artidle’s title refers to several previous theories about the meaning of the initials “G. W. H.” and who actually made this ammunition.
G.W.H. was registered in Germany as the trade mark of Gebrüder Webendörfer, Namburg. They also registered “The Boomerang” trade mark and “The Southern Cross” in 1896. Webendöfer had a large export business around the turn of the 19th/20th Century, basedin Hamburg and with offices in Sydney, Australia, at 187 Clarence Street. The Boomerang and Southern Cross trade marks were registered in Australia, along with the Bayard Trade mARK, by this German firm.
G. W. H. sold ammunition made by various other makers. For example, it is known that some of their metallic pistol cartridges were Made by Munitionswerke, Schönebeck am Elbe, Germany (M.W. S…).
The G. W. H. headstamp appears to be more often found in Australia than anywhere else.
I strongly suggest that a copy of this article by found for much more informaation.
