My late mother-in -law worked in the canteen around that time, and I think she might also have been something like shop steward for the Union, although I don't know which one. Her name was Marjorie Booth.

My Uncle, Ken Morris ( born 1917) worked in the export dept there for most of his life & retired abt 1982 I think. He lived at 43 Rothay Rd.
