It is with sadness we have to announce the death of another of our ex colleagues. Graham died a few days ago, in the early hours of his 89th birthday.
He came to Gloucester from South Wales with two more lads to commence an apprenticeship at F & P. That was on February 7th 1949. Others in that intake were Ted Williams, John Davis, Larry Jackson and Roy Bullock.
Later on Graham earned a reputation as an extremely skilled fitter, respected by all who knew him, always willing to help and encourage others around him.
He was, in all respects, a real gentleman.
Details of his Funeral Service will be published as soon as they become available.
