Husband's General Notes
Max was also involved in the Israeli arms industry - inclding a secret underground factory near Rehovot for making grenades for the Hagganah - that was located under the Laundry of a Kibbutz.
The Hagganah had originally sought his assitance when he was still in Germany.
The Laundry actually had a contract to wash the British Army uniforms.
There is now a small museum there in which there is a picture of Max
Later on he visited Sheffield with my father Fred to look at materials for gun barrels.
