A Tale of two Henrys by Gilbert Ralph During World War II,
when Britain was desperate for more fighter aircraft, the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill,
asked the US president, Franklin Roosevelt, for assistance in manufacturing Rolls-Royce Merlin engines.
Roosevelt contacted Edsel Ford, who was then President of Ford Motor Company, and Edsel agreed to make the engines to R-R specifications.
The Ford company began immediately to set up a production facility when along came Henry to enquire what was taking place.
When he was told, he flew into a rage declaring how he hated the British in general and Churchill in particular and that the Ford Motor Company would not be a party to it.
When told the President had promised to help Churchill, Henry declared that was the Presidentís problem.
An embarrassed Edsel reported back to the Government and Packard took over the contract.
I wonder how Henry reacted when he learned that Ford in England were compelled by Churchillís wartime government to make Rolls-Royce Merlin engines at its Trafford Park Works?
