Worked on production at tempered springs ( bacon lane @ foley street ) mid eighties , knew some cracking blokes , mick sheppard , noel wilson, walt ? ( went on the booze up with him to benidorm every november) geoff mall inson ( worked at swfc @ sufc on the turnstiles on saturdays ). Was proper graft on the furnaces but a pleasure to work with such gentlemen.
