I worked at Dormer/SKF from 1981 to 92, leaving from the Holbrook plant and remember to tale about the drill from japan.


Few names of my era and age range were, Martin Mitchell,

Phil Bearman, Glynn Booker, Mick Silenti. whoose dad was Robert, Mark and Neil Crossley, sons of pat and maurice and Neil Dalton.


Works managers were pennington and woolhouse, loads of fun playing cat and mouse around the place with them, rather than working:P


Had a great time working with some real characters, still tell tales of the "old days", now I'm 40!
