Ammunition Found in Flat 29! – 1949

Ammunition 1949

We all know from living at Onslow Court about our strange water distribution and stopcocks, but none was more strange that this story from the local paper in 1949.

Nine-year-old John Millkin, of 29 Onslow Court, Worthing slept for several months within a few feet of a quantity of live, 303 ammunition without knowing it.

This week it was discovered by accident and removed by the police – all 15 rounds of it.

It came to light because of the faulty bathroom tap. It was necessary to switch off another tap in the medicine cupboard in Johns bedroom and while Mrs. P.D. Millikin, Johns mother and a porter at the flats were examining the inside of the cupboard, they saw some of the ammunition wedged in a partition.

Five rounds were extracted and John and his sister (Jill) later found another ten. Onslow Court was occupied by the military during the war.

Paper cutting provided by Zoe Bailey flat 12a.

The latest advice from Onslow Court Managers, HML Andertons, regarding the back of the building is that the replacement of Crittall casements and doors or old white UVPC must be black, they can be of any material and as in the case of the façade of the building, the Mangers at Andertons need to be consulted before work can commence.

Decorations to the back of the building are due to start in summer months of 2017 so it is an ideal time to think about replacement to coincide with render repairs.
