Re: Todays Header.(Leslies Gate).
Hi Eddy, Yes it was John Laing who closed the main gate spot on 7.30am, you were kept waiting there for 5-6 minutes and let in through the small Dudas door, you then had to go and see Ron (Time keeper) to get your time card marked at the window. Happy times......Not.
The yard manager was a Mr Todd who would give you a stern warning if you were late to many times.
