I remember Gerry Faulkner well.  I was very friendly with his wife Joyce (Pedlow) and stayed with her many a time when Gerry was away.  They had a beautiful daughter Geraldine.  Does anyone know what became of Gerry and Joyce or Ken Lilley?

Never heard much about Gerry Faulkner, he might have freaked out after Jimmy Hendrix passed on. I'd love to hear more about Ken Lilley, lovely lad, he and I had a great reporte. Dennis went to Canada I think perhaps Ken followed him over. All the lads that emigrated there did very nicely indeed. Sam Smith now there was a very, very skilled Toolmaker. The success I had during and after Grundig was very largely down to the guidance I had from Sam. He married a lovely girl called Rosaleen, unfortunately I never encountered either of them again.

An old photo from the new Toolroom, probably 1979-1980 just before it closed!

Hi Ros, I can put a name to most of them and with a bit of help from a mate who worked there but not in the photo, probably all but two. I'll study them and back to you.
I can say that the one at the back on your right hand side is me!
Be back this evening.
