Unfortunately, no good memories for me. One of my neighbours, Eugene Ford got me a job there in 1973. I was put on straightening castings on a giant press. I hated it and left after 2 weeks.

Hi Banjo. I remember Ginger Ford that was good of him to get you a job but you should have given it a bit more than 2 weeks before you decided to leave.I know it was heavy work but a mate of mine Stan Rogalson did it for 28 years.

Banjo. I too remember Ginger. It's nice to see people still recalling names after all these years.Maybe i'm wrong, but did Ginger hang about with a girl named Alison Baker (i think) ? Just wondering.

Hi Bazz you are correct they were a item and eventually got married.I think Alison worked in the main office.

Glad my memory stood the test of time, thanks Punch. I'm sure i took Alison back to her house at lunchtime on a working day. Can't remember what she wanted, but i was glad to drive her there. Wonder how the two of them are nowadays. Hopefully, well and safe. Anyway, thanks for the reply Punch, and you take care too.
