Summary

When Williams sold a handmade packsaddle to Sir Sidney Kidman for 5 pounds in 1933, he was in fact beginning one of the country's most highly successful manufacturing enterprises. The R. M. Williams label - famous for its sturdy riding boots, moleskins and oilskins - has since become beloved of country and city people alike.
