  • That’s me posing during commissioning of the Press in the Gloucester works
    It was Girling’s in Cwmbran as a coining Press
    I had borrowed Brian Gage’s smock.
    He was the foremen at the time of the New Fitting Shop located in Baker Street.
    Great company and a lot of great characters.

    Ed: Thanks Ivan! It is nice to put a name at last to the face on the leaflet! John B
