Re: Thursday's header from 133 years ago
For Tom Barker : served my time 1951 - 1955 also as a Woodworking apprentice at Palmers . Thinking back I can only remember one other apprentice , he did his National Service 2 years in the middle of his apprentice-ship . Our Lead-Hand was Percy Doughter. The head man in the shop office was Patterson. I workd a lot on the spindle/shaper. It was a relatively small end of the joiners shop . Perhaps 6 journey men . I worked with asbestos and it shows if I go for x-rays resulting now in my twilight days a shortness of breath at times . Can give you the layout of the shop, we used to play table tennis in our half hour lunch break. One of the better players , a joiner , had an artificial leg -ring a. Bell ? My last day at Palmers was June/July 1955. Can you describe anything that may connect us ?
