Joe I moved to Wales in 1971 and still here.  The older I get the memories of names and faces elude me. The testing huts were called "the labs" when I worked there.

I still live in Germany Rosaleen and I know the feeling with names etc: Were the test areas at the end of the production lines called "cabins"? Belated happy New Year to you.

Joe Yes they were called the cabins. I dont recall much about the rest of the factory. I used to take over for the nurse on occasions because I had a first aid certificate and I was going out with Ken Lilley who was a tool maker there. They were great times. Belated happy new year to you too

Indeed Rosaleen, very fond memories of working there. I often wonder how the former collegues are getting along and would we recognise each other.

hi,
just wondering did any of you worked in a Grundig factory in Germany in mid sixties. I am trying to find a lady named Jean Kenny who did. Maybe she worked in the Belfast factory when she came back to northern Ireland. Any info would be great. Thanks

Sadly Eddie passed away last year

im coming to this disscusscion a little late. Eddie Eccles was my boss for many years I am saddened to hear of his death, he was a decent human and a good boss. I also worked with Keneth Lilly and his brother Dennis. Oh happy days. Many of the names mentioned here were everyday working friends like Gerry Faulkner. I worked in the toolroom for many years, my mother Edna worked on the line since the company opened till it closed in 1980.
