  • I also served my time like Barry Symes in the toolroom as an apprentice. We were so fortunate to work with such skilled people which included Eric Knight, Dickie Dixon, Ron Woodman, ? (glasses), Alan Rogers, Gerry (Hill, I think), Wilbur Wright and Maurice Bartlett. Such happy memories from the late sixties.
