John Mabbett & Les George
In this audio file, John Davis remembers John Mabbett who was a “very skilled” Fitter. In one of the photographs, John is examining a valve block. The role of the fitter, John explains, was not just confined to building machinery, but was crucial to the maintenance of the machines that Fielding and Platt produced. In the second photo, John is pictured with Les George who was a Pipe Fitter.
