Royal Army Pay Corps Rupert Street
The Royal Army Pay Corps regimental pay office in Leicester administered the pay of the Royal Artillery - the largest arm of the army (which is why in turn the Leicester pay office was also the largest in the British army). The Leicester office was split into Wings, each of which had a separate building. In 1941 the factory belonging to hosiery manufacturers Hubbard & Kenning on Rupert street was requisitioned to become the pay office for the Royal Artillery's coastal defence batteries. Still standing today the building has been converted into residential use and is known as "The Print Room".
