  1. That was another interesting aspect to the journey,i think Wards had some connection to the Rootes Group and so we were given new Hillman Imps,at 6ft3ins it was quite cramped as you can imagine.
  2. Worked in the team of site supervisers involved in reclaiming materials from the railway branch lines closed under the beeching plan in the 60s.I was given Devon and Cornwall,quite a journey in those days,drove down the fosse way to the southwest.
  3. Worked at Record Ridgway,used it as a route home to avoid Parkway at rush hour.
  4. Remember in a pre test lesson I was busy changing gear and giving a hand signal when the instructer commented "it might be a good idea if at least one hand was on the steering wheel".
  5. Any memories of the brick works on Rutland Road.
  6. Mine was Stewart and Stewart armed with a list sent of all the requirements on top of the main uniform eg. house sports shirt,craft apron etc. and name tags to be made.It's only later you realise the expense put on our parents to give us a good education.
  7. Do you remember going for your school uniform and where you got it from back in the 50s/60s.
