Garrington wrenches

Garringtons was an English company, starting as a forging company in 1837, making a wide variety of forgings for industry. By the end of WW2, they were producing a line of their own hand tools. Interestingly, they named each tool type after a bird. These two wrenches- Merlin and Kestrel- were Whitworth but AF and metric types were also made, some of the other wrench names were Grebe, Heron, Jackdaw, Jay, Lapwing, Puffin and Wren. Sounds like a good subject for a Quest to me!
