I remember your mum very well. She was a treasure !!
I am sorry to advise all who remember her, that she died peacefully this morning. She started at Leyland at South Works medical and also worked at North Works, Old Engine before ending up at Comet until her retirement.

I don't know where the comet shop was, names i remember mum talking about in the nozzle shop, Eric Rawcliffe was one. He became a family friend , his next door neighbour worked there too, used to run from his house near to Broadfield Arms to work, cannot remember his name. Thinking head on...
