I'm almost sure that my dad was working at Suttons at that time. I think he must have got fed up of permanent nights and left for a better paid job at Baginton Airport (Armstrong Whitworth) until its closure. From there he went to Laxons on Charter Ave and was there until he passed away in 1977. I can only ever remember him having those 3 jobs. I don't know when he started at Suttons, but I guess he was there until 1959/60. I can now remember a couple of his work colleagues, Sidney (Taffy) Sweet and Peter Quinliven?
