Scope and Content

This Sandhurst Mill ledger is less well organised than ledger OVER-001. The business appears to have changed its focus from milling and now works mainly as a supplier of general goods. These included a saw mill, provender, potatoes, game, peat, pigs and calves, and services to do with horses, such as supply of feed and straw and stabling. Services such as ploughing were offered.
Clients during this period include the Army Canteen Committee (presumably from Sandhurst Army Barracks), a number of army officers, and the Army Remount Depot at Arborfield which purchased large quantities of wheat straw for their horses. Wellington College and the Broadmoor Asylum were occasional customers. Mangolds by the ton were delivered to the latter. Although Over Bros were the owners of Sandhurst Mill they also appear as clients.
The ledger is water damaged.
