Caroline,
Thank you for another pic that has the old grey matter frying.
When I returned from the Waggon Works to what was then Dobson Park Industries, I joined them as Group Services (industrial engineering) and with a degree under my belt.
I was located in the Group Offices (Clarington Forge).
Derek Thwaites was my boss (head of Group Services)
Frank Darbyshire was Managing Director of English Tools and Peter Senior was Sales Director, Brian Scrivens (ex WRLFC) was Engineer and George Melling was Works Manager.
I left the company around 1967.
Moved to Ireland and still here today.

Going from your pic, I have problems identifying any of the faces.
Scrivens - Darbyshire - Melling I cannot see - and maybe Peter Senior is the 3rd guy (front row - right)

Thank you again, and maybe you have more pics to follow.
