Recently Jason Robinson shot to fame as a Rugby World Cup hero. There's a famous Leylander in the pop group Liberty X although, I don't know his name. Not forgetting the pioneers on Leyland Motors.

What about the "Lady" who paraded outside the Post Office during the War - was her name, I forget, she used to wear a fur coat and always had a word for the lads. (very tongue in cheek, sorry) I`ve mentioned before, Sergeants Pollitt and Turner of Leyland Police, they were famous!! and what about Butcher Lord? W.R.

Which Henry Spurrier?
There were two.

I didn't know that. Which one is the famous one then, elder or junior?
The elder Henry was in charge until the 1940's and handed over to son Henry ,later Sir Henry, and H.S. Markland, and together they developed the post war company.
