Someone mentioned the works study group, and Pat Hopwood in an earlier message. Didn't he finish up getting locked up?

 

Yes something about creaming offmoney from dealing with scrap metal from Aldridge tools (I still have the page from the STAR). also it was also thought that he had some connection over the accountant at the time being shot in Hathersage.

Don't think Electricians had anyone to form a five a side team, the few younger "sparkies" were more interested in fishing!

I used to work under Bob Cliffe and a guy called Ken in despatch in the 50s.is that after your time:thumbsup:

 

I was at Twist Drill from 67-72. Started in CSD under Bob Cliffe in the old offices, and then we moved to the new block. Also worked for a while in "The School" down the road. The only Ken that springs to mind is Ken Mercer, who was always in CSD when I was there. It was rumoured at the time that he had a bit of a thing going with Christine Moss.

aaaaaargh like a dagger through the heart. Being multi skilled and super fit, the younger tricians had a variety of sporting interests. Fishing, squash, footy, chess, table tennis. And still found time to keep all the machines, (and lights) working.
