Lest we forget

On the topic of Remembrance day, 

The production of wellington boots dramatically increased due to the advent of WW1 when Hunter (then called North British Rubber Company) was asked by the War Office to construct a sturdy boot suitable for trench conditions. You can imagine the impact they had on the soldiers! Without proper foot protection, many suffered "trench foot" which could have meant amputation if left untreated. 

When they were called once again in WW2, 80% of the production of wellies was for war materials. They were an essential.
