Return to the Victory Index
With very few surviving company records and with no regular catalogues or publications, finding information about Victory Industries Ltd is often a little bit like looking for a needle in haystack. Some of the information I've included in these pages comes from former employees, some from trade magazines and articles and the rest from fellow collectors but there are still huge gaps in my knowledge which I'd love to be able to fill. If you have anything that can add to the story then let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm particularly looking for any of the following paperwork either to purchase, photocopy or swap for reference, but please let me know of any you have for sale:
Price lists (assuming that they exist)
