  • Hi John. I think the electrician at the cabinet could be Terry Little and the other one adjusting a limit switch, Neil Edwards? I can’t work out who the person is pictured up on the pump and tank platform, and could it be Tony Barton who is just visable holding a spanner by the crosshead inside the press?
