It was just any other summer afternoon in the sleepy, picturesque town of Londonderry, Ireland, when the foundation for Peter England was laid. The year 1888 saw the onset of the Boer war. Amidst the parried surroundings, Peter England established its first factory; which later became a landmark structure. Upon the special request by the British Military, Peter England outfit the troops fighting the English front lines with battle-ready apparel. Everyone in the kingdom looked at it and admired the contribution Peter England was making towards the security of the nation.
