On January 25th 2018 this fine, well-known gentleman reached his century, an achievement rarely, if ever, reached by an ex Fielding & Platt employee.
Lionel celebrated quietly with his wife, step daughter and her husband. He had a few visitors, firstly Ken Daniell, and then Ron Curtis and John Davis. A birthday cake was cut and enjoyed and the birthday card from H M The Queen was displayed with pride.
A framed photograph of Lionel and some of his colleagues was presented to him. Photographs taken to mark this special day are attached.
