I was in Tech Pubs from 1977 to 1983, by which time the place was falling apart, and redundancies were rife. I was booted and ended up in Tech Pubs at GEC Energy Systems, Whetstone, and then at Jaguar Radford, Browns Lane, and Whitley. Bert was my boss too (grumpy old so and so ;) ). He passed a few years ago, as did Roy Baker. Nigel Pratt was a good mate even if he was a Villa fan. His mum, Dulcie, courted with my uncle Bill Kimberley before meeting Nigel's dad.
