Norman Hallam worked there for many years as a field engineer. About 1963 he transferred down to Boston. Most thursdays we went up to Mowbray st. for various reasons. First port of call was the canteen for breakfast. Tom Keefe was transport manager , Harry Berry foreman and Ron Miller next in line. Albert Coe walked around with hand full of paperwork. I think he was stock controller or something like that. Steve with his pint tea mug and his little office was in charge of aerial work. I think Tom Keefe was a bit of a pig to most staff but we were ok as we always went up with veg and potatoes rose bushes from a renowned boston grower. During the strawberry season we spent the previous day picking strawberries to fill the van. They were always in great demand. Norman spent about four or five years and then became homesick returning to his old house 13 fulmere road parsons cross. He was a good mate.

I could go on for ever about those days.With a bit of thought a few more name will come back. Bob Warrington at rutland road has just popped up.

I presume you were at mowbray street. What period would that be?

Hope to chat at length soon.
