Hi all Wave I had an office then, on the east side of Foleshill Rd, where I could see this view, almost as though the camera was in CEL. Coventry's "Happy" would often wander along, complete with uniform & flat cap & practice his drill marching in the paved area, saluting everyone as they went by. Smile

Hi all, I was an apprentice at CEL from 1965 until 1970 and remember Ted Mackey, the Convener and also Ray Morton who was the Heavy Machine Shop Foreman. He married a woman who worked in the Time Office. I cannot remember her name now. I also remember Ev Watchorn who was the Chargehand of the Boring Section. Does anyone remember these people? Smile

Hi johnbettany, Found that rather amusing someone working in the Boring Section, but then I guess all companies have one. Big grin

Hi, Does anyone know what happened to Courtaulds Coventry Rugby Club - I cannot see them listed anywhere. I played for them about 1962 so they must have been formed about 1959 and were in existence when I left Coventry in 1964. Their colours were black, gold and silver and they played at their own ground somewhere in Little Heath. Their main organiser was a man who worked in the labs in Lockhurst Lane so I suspect when he retired the club folded.
