I worked at English Steel 1956 to 1962, Byron Revitt was a guy I new. He was an apprentice Moulder under Rotherm Sam and Bazz also Joe Coleman and Allan.Coleman used 1/4 of loose tea in his mashing can then two spoons of fussells milk to sweeten it. I played football with Ambrose Parker (Pamm) at Norton Woodseats Dronfield, he had big motorbike scared me to death when he gave me a lift home. Good footballer was Pamm, scary when kicking a dead ball, I have not seen either in 50 years and it brings back memories when I read Vera Parker posts thank you.

Anyone remember Jeff Edwards?? He may have been at Firth Vickers and Shepcote Lane but may have had dealings with the other companies. Anyway, he's 92 and lives in Stranraer. And he's just back from a month in Madeira.

Does anyone remember a well known character Dennis Dixon who was a Crane Driver in the River Don Stamp Shop at the Milford Street end of the Works.

 

He did more deals in a day selling than most salesmen did in a week.

 

Happy Days! PopT
