  • Thanks Tony! I’m afraid we’re missing the 1951 & 1952 intake photos so if you know someone who might have one that would be very helpful.

    It would be good to know a more about your brother – how he came to be instructor, the things he said about being one and about working at Fielding’s, and any other memories or stories of his time as an instructor there. Please do share these below by adding further comments – we’d be very grateful if you did. All good wishes, Ollie

  • Front row, 4th from the left, is Gerald Williams, my older brother (I believe this was his first year as an instructor). He had entered the F&P Apprentice School in the 1952 intake (I think) – any photos from 1951 or 1952?

  • Thanks Alan – did you start your apprenticeship in the 50s too? I meant to ask: did you do anything in the Craft School with Bert that helped prepare you for your work in the Pipe Shop later?
