Hi again Brian - the little tinbasher is NORMAN PEEL from chorley a proper comic was Norman, he had this little 'habit' of putting his finger in a pot of molten solder and it always came out undamaged, never sussed out how he did it and i certainly was not one to try it, (just thought too, on the other photo the chap i have put as Jack Clarke, i think he was in the tinbasher's shop) the chap behind Dave Leather i'm pretty sure is ERIC WORTHINGTON

Hi Andy.
Yes of course it was Norman Peel, and Eric Worthington, (I think he was a Turner), and the guy over Norman Peel's left shoulder is an apprentice at the time called Les Jackson. I've picked that up from the photo of the 1962 apprentices posted by Alan Norris,on the Heinz Kitt Green page, although I don't remember him whilst I worked there. As I said I know plenty faces but can't put names to them. I've got a photo taken behind the plumbers shop that will probably interest you, but just at present for some unknown reason it won't upload. If it carries on I will e-mail it to Brian webmaster for him to put it on.

Yes that is me, I was over Normans left shoulder. I was apprenticed to Norman for 6 months in the tin bashers. My dad was an electrician on shifts, also Les Jackson. Yes it was Ken Doran, hard bugger was Ken.
