Information on H Collier & Sons Plumstead Factory (Matchless

This famous company was founded in 1899 by H H Collier and had its works at Woolwich in London. The first TT race in 1907 was won by Collier's son Charles on a 432cc Matchless, the first of many triumphs in the Isle of Man. After the First World War race machines were based on production models but were still successful. In 1931 Matchless merged with AJS and gradually the two marques lost their separate identities. Matchless went into decline in the 1950s.

I had known for some time that my father (& I believe his father also) worked at the Plumstead factory from c. 1917 ~ 1925 & recently came across a reference for my father from H Collier himself regretting that "it is necessary for him to leave to improve his position."

Does anyone have any information regarding employees & their jobs about this time or information about the factory itself
