I wonder which of the many references to the Co-ops in Jarrow would be the one in which I was the " flour boy". Between 1941- at the age of 14 until 1943 when my family and me moved to Yorkshire ?
I at that time only knew of the one where I worked. I recall that it was - in the eyes of a young lad- quite big, and, that it was only a grocery store. I have in the past posted a brief account of my time there , I know that it is now some time ago since I reached the pinnical of my first employment as flour boy entrusted with all the high tech bits of equipment around in those bygone years.Memories that are today still sharp.
O dear ! us older ones do rabbit on a bit !
