I wouldn't think so bullerboy as I was only part time. There was some staff changes at the time and I'm sure they brought their son as a manager, also a guy called Bob Gorrill who later went to work at hillsborough .

I worked for them for around 14yrs,Walt was a perfectionist and if you didnt match up you were down the road.After i left we became friends and i saw him at Bawtry near where he lived two weeks before he died.I still see Dot and phone her quite often. cheers mel.

 

I worked at Waldot in 1957 when I left school and then went to Hillsborough garage
