Hi Martyn Sparks! just to help fill in your blanks,Jim Sterling was a good friend,the two 'Freds' were personal friends and your fourth blank was Thomas Dodworth who was my stepfather,he worked there for years. I myself drove the delivery trucks and was ecstatic to drive the first 'Dennis' low loader,I can also remember quite a few of the drivers names. Tony P.

Does anyone remember Charlie Hill who was a Boiler Man? and a chap called Hedley cant remember his surname, I think he was a painter. I worked as a spare boiler man for around a year it was the worst year of my life.

I remember going on a trip to watch Whitbreads play in a football match down south in the late 80's, my mate was playing for them (Darran Hanson). What a day that was, free booze, free food, but don't ask me what the score was, no idea! :hihi:

I remember Bill very well,he would do anything for anyone..ask him if he remembers Jack Ford and Les Garforth plus Horace Barlow. I joined Tennants in 1961 and if my memory is good I think Whitbread took over around 1965/6
