I worked at Gullicks since 1977 until 2000 and it brings back lots of Great memories looking at this picture.
I started in the stores before becoming a foreman finishing my days there in the dispatch department.

I recognise most of the faces but its hard to put names to them all, i do see Brian Kennedy far left and i do know the guys pictured represent the fitters, mechanics etc. Happy Days eh.

I also worked at Gullicks 1960--2000 it brings back many happy memories.I started at Ince Forge as app. electrcian, then in the electronics dept. It appears that it was Bob Meaadows leaving retirement,Bob was a boilerman along with Jack Close, Michael taffy Metcalfe, Jimmy Amor. The picture also includes,Geoff Read maintainance manager,Jack Ellison foreman fitter,Colin Round,Ian Cunliffe,John Bond(fitters) oiler and greecer Jimmy Duddy.etc etc
