You will have to point out Gordy Wilding, this is the class below the one I was in. I knew the names then, but now most have gone through the overflow. Harold was at British Leyland when I was there. He was on days, I was on regular nights. I was made redundant 1981, don't know when he went.
Frank did live at the Square, went to his house often;I think it was 30 or 31, I haven't been round there since the late 70's or thereabout.
