  • Hi John! In the 1st photo I think it is Dave ( Read ? ) on top of the press and maybe George Brown standing on the floor below doing some drilling? I wasn’t in Hyd 2 at this time as I would still have been either in the Craft School or on my 12 month tour of the works.  Chippy Aston.

    Ed:  Definitely George Brown.  John B
