  • Well well! Only just found this site, yes that’s me on the back row! I was at Fielding’s for about 13 years, including some time in the Drawing Office at Heenan in Froude in Worcester. Finished up in the Sales Department back at Fielding’s, initially working for Morgan Walton who died a couple of weeks ago at his home in Cornwall. Still working in engineering now at nearly 70 and no intention of giving up! Lot’s of tales to tell….

  • Thanks Bob, that’s really helpful and exactly what we’re hoping for from the site – that people will add their memories and comments. With the help of people like yourself we can build a picture of the company that does it justice!

  • The two in the back row of the photo 6th and 7th are Malcolm Edwards and Chris Cruse; 8th is Haydn Gurney. In the front row, 2nd from the right was Steve Naude. Hope this helps. Bob Gough (I was in 1961 intake).
