Chapter 11 … up to the picture of the bus

So here I was back in Swindon, at the age of 20-21. I don’t remember how I got the job but I di  d. I got a job at Linton and Hurst , in Stratton St. Margaret’s. Linton and Hurst was on the edge of Swindon. i got a job there as a machine operator on the steel silting line. It was here that I was to encounter my first presses and dies.

I was still a bit shy and naive at this age had already discovered that i liked to work around machinery while I was at Light Alloys.. So I was comfortable with that. Working on the slitting line was fun. My boss a slim bloke with red hair who we called Ginger. Well he taught me how to run a Slitter and also all the machinery and equipment that went with it.
