  1. We had one at home although don't recall dad using it & I remember my grandad using one to repair his boots in the 1950's
  2. This is a bit of an Englands last hope but my gran dad William Morrris won the best batting prize for a club EWSCC in 1902. I have been trying for years to find out what EWS Cricket Club was. Could have been Norton & District. Any ideas please? Thansk a lot John
  3. I collected stamps when I was young . Remember buying them from a shop in Sheffield Market. I had a very full album with first day covers etc. 40 years ago we moved from Sheffield & had to put everything in store ; my stamp album was one a few things including a silver tray which we eventually realised (too late!) had not been in the contents when they were eventually delivered to us. Sad !
  4. Thanks for your replies. I havent lived in Sheffield since 1976 & haven't been down past that cemetery since I was a boy in 1950/60's. So its good to know my memory is right !
  5. I seem to remember a Jewish Cemetery on t.h left as you went into Ecclesfield going down from Sheffield Lane Top. Anyone else have memories of it ?
  6. Could you post his Tracer Card on here please? I have never heaard of them before
  7. I went there when it first opened in Sept 1956 . Was in the first 5th form which had 10 girls & 5 boys (inc me). Did RSA School Certificate & left 1960.
  8. Hi Jim, Don't know if you know that Swinden Labs was shut just over a year ago. The staff were supposed to go to a new Lab at Warwick but few, if any, went. I gather application for houses on the site was put in. I don't live in Sheffield now so not seen site for a few years. John
  9. Were you ate Swinden when Roy Gunstone was manager of Welding lab? He was Maanager of Welding lab at ECS when I was there. Can't recall Alan Edwards or Derek Crossland. I spent quit e a lot of time at Swinden in the 1980's & 90's at meetings & with Derek Wake on Quality.
  10. I worked in ESC Welding lab from 1964 until 1967 mostly working on Submerged Arc Cladding & went up to Lab area in Foundry quite a lot. In October 1967 went to work at Bisra Hoyle street then Teesside Labs from 1976. Maybe we know each other? John Moore
  11. Yes - I havent lived in Sheffield since 1976 & havent seen it for some years . It was such agreat sports club back in ESC days & its a shame to see how many of these wonderful facilities have been allowed to go
  12. I think it became a community facility some years ago but cant remember the name
  13. Hade my bachelor night in there in March 1968
  14. Does anyone know if there is available old listings of members of the Clarion Club please? I am interested in John Moore & his sons Arthur, Eric , John, William Leslie & Thomas in period 1928 - 1940. Family legend has it that some of them were involved in the 1932 Mass Trespass of Kinder Scout. Thanks, John
