  • Hi John!  In photo 1, as well as Bill Wagner, I can see Pete Wood in the background behind a stone plant. I don’t remember this particular one as it was just before my time in Hyd 2. I do remember Bill and Pete though and worked with both of them whilst I was an apprentice.

    In photo 2 I think that could be Terry Long? I seem to think he was involved in a bad car accident, possibly being killed, but I hope I’m wrong about that!   Chippy Aston.
