Has anyone got a contact number for Frank? I think he still lives in Wigan or nearby. I remember his daughter or daughter in law posting something about him a few years ago on the COMMUNICATE TOPIC

Frank has a look of a young Jemmy Higham on this pic. He also worked at the old Pem Caravans.

He worked on the over head line time at springs branch.I think he got nocked off a ladder and broke some bones.

Incredible sportsman. The competition stats show just how advanced he was at his chosen sport. Not everybody understands bodybuilding, each to their own I suppose but for him to compete at that level in that era and be placed and be known throughout the world (mixed with Arnold Schwarzenegger)in that sport, incredible achievement...made even more incredible because of the very serious injuries he suffered on the railways. I bet he has some stories !

The steroids helped a lot too.
