Re: Good news for our area
Eddie , you were out and out liner off, when I got sent to swans because I had slagged off two little foremen starting with m,I ended up mostly on out fitting. I mostly worked circa foreman called John Mullen and his chargehand big robin a guy 6.7 from Blyth. I was a terrible time keeper because I knew I was going to leave. You and Bob were terrific to me, I found out later aged 40 I was dyslexic, small wonder I struggled to understand plans. Did you find me at that young age slow on thisz?
You, and Bob were great tutors, and a guy called Jim Elstob, later when I was in swans big yard while still apprentice worked in outfitting swood work section with guy caĺdd called Billy Todd's, his brother was manager in Palmers Walter.
After I left I went totally different way but remember those yrs well and i acheveived degree, and masters, qualifications and now thinking about doing PhD, u and Bob were great for me.
