Shotshell wads

Since 1957 I have had this sample box of shotshell wads.What I would like to know is who made the wads, and does anyone have the same box with a label on it. One top wad has the name Trent Guns & Cartridges printed on it, so probably that’s the manufacturer. However, it could also just be an example of such printing. Trent (1929-1954) was a well known shotshell producer at Grimsby, England, and was said to be one of only two shotshell case manufacturers in England at the time, so they were certainly capable of making their own wads.
