I was an apprentice in the machine shop from 1965 to 69.

My name is Brian Cowling...ring any bells? ( milling section )

Our training officer was George Cooper . He was a goody-goody type.. gave a tenth of his earnings to his church if that helps..He was a nice man.

His brother Alf worked there also but was a polar opposite of George. He was made up to shop foreman just before I left and was quite strict. Must have gone to his head. He used to stand at the end of all the machines at 5 minutes to finishing time to make sure nobody washed off early.

Other names I remember were Jack Hardy ( tool stores boss ) who died before I left.

John Hazard...charge hand.

Phillip Berger and Kenneth Cook ( two apprentices set on same time as me.)

Byron Watson (machinist and shop steward) . I named my first son after him.

A guy called Ted..highly skilled bloke .worked on the milling section also...his second name will come to me after I post this.... ( just remembered..Ted Belk )

When I got to about 20 or 21 I left for a job with more money..to Ashow Engineering. .who paid most in Sheffield at the time

Over all I have fond memories of Edward Pryor and Sons.
