Re: A 21 minute film about Palmers from 1949
I worked in Palmers Hebburn in 1962/63 when I was 15 going on 16 for the Constructional Steel side shown in the film, it was called Vickers Armstrong Constructional Steel Division, my father also worked here at the same time as me, he was a welder who also worked away on construct erection jobs like Monsanto Chemical Works at Whithaven for Vickers, he may have previously worked on the shipyard part but I dont know that. I started working for the drawing office taking drawings down to the Construct Sheds for the various Foremen, Platers, Drillers etc. I then went to work in the Sheds as a Driller, I really hated it in the Sheds and found another job working for Excel Bowling as an electrical mechanic.
