I think Hilda Lunn was married to Ernie Lunn who had a car bodyshop on Holme Lane.

I worked there for a short period sometime '66-68 down in the basement where they rumbled the scissors in pebbles - cyanide was also used in this process. The chap in charge of the rumblers had a strange vocabulary and a very short temper! Poor quality, mass produced scissors I thought, rather like Richardsons, cashing in on the Sheffield name.

I can't remember his name, he was a portly, elderly man with, I think, long sideburns. I also remember the lady manager up in the office, who seemed quite nice.

I was there for a couple of years around 1970.

First in the tool room but then I was Charge-hand in the welding shop (at the back where the big presses and the benders were.

I remember:

Jean Mitchell.- Was she in charge of the piercing Dept?

Bridgett -- ? Worked in the office

Mr Marriott - Works manager.

The caretaker ? - He lived in the house attached to the back.

Michael the labourer - was he the quiet, well spoken bloke who had a thing going with a youngish woman who also worked there?

Anyone remember going in The Raven at dinner times?
