Only know your father (holding the no smoking sign) on this photo, perhaps you could name the others if you know them.Your father was one of 3 welders,working in the maintenance dept at Standish, the other two were also Joe's, Joe Hare and Joe Barrett.Worked in the welders shop for 6 months with the 3 Joe's.Takes me back a little bit.

Dear Jim Latham,you must be on the wrong DH,never had a pub anytime,might be a good idea though,save me going to the local.
