Alant139, you must have worked there in the mid 60's. My dad worked in Vulcan works until he retired in the 80's . His name was Ted Randall  I remember most of the people who worked there in the 60's from '63 until I left in '67. Frank Walsh general manager, Bob Woods , head receptionist, Ted Cooper stores manager, Don Sinclair service assistant manager ( and right ba**ard). the Reg you mentioned was Reg Walsh, (Franks brother), he left in '64 and bought the Red Lion pub in Tyn-Y Gros in North Wales. I was Regs apprentice then worked with firstly Alan Gifford the Vic Laporte before I left and went to Rootes Knott Mill.
