Nice to know that you're still around Pete (Jackson). There were some great characters at MV when I started in the Design Office and Lab in 1980 but sadly my memory is not what it was. The previous messages have stirred up names from the past, and I can now add: Brufton (Works Manager), Davidson (Sales Director), Harold Hartley - ex Greens - Trevor Thompson, Tony Fletcher, John Mallinson (ex Srott Benham), I'm still in touch with the latter three.

Yes, I remember Stuart Portman. Went out with him several times to put School Dinner Ladies right when they were trying to make sponge cakes using 'soft' margarine! Also occasionally saw him in Morrisons shopping after I had left MV to go to Stott Benham. I really should not have butted onto this thread, as PeteJackson has pointd out to me in a PM, my memory of names is now terrible. My Sales Director - Davidson - was actually Bernard Cowley. Of course my Harold Hartley was Ernest! Thanks Pete! Brufton was, I think, George. Margaret Frewin became 'World Famous' after she had modelled demonstrating the 'M' Line range of appliances with her photograph on the fronts of information leaflets. Margery Pugh is another name culled from the deep. Ian Marshal - and his wife-, John Dalton who also worked in the Drawing Office, he opened a fish and chip shop on Greengate Lane, at Mortumley. Faces keep flashing by me - but names........!

My dad used to work at MV in Harleston St as a lorry driver. I think that was in the late 60s but he didn't move to Ecclesfield as far as I remember.
