The picture was taken in either the 48" or 34" rolling mill motor room. I finished my apprenticeship in the rolling mills (1969) and recognise a lot of faces in the picture but cannot remember many names. Those I do remember are Bob Jamieson (front, 5th right), Reg Dixon (back, right), Arthur Barlow (back, centre) and Willie Barclay next to him.

My Dad, Tony Henry, worked at Stewart and LLoyds in Corby from ,I think, 1960 to 1962 in the labs, then went to RTB in Newport, Sth Wales. We moved to Oz in 64 and he then worked in Tassie at Comalco Aluminium and finally in Perth, WA at Kwinana Nickel Refinery, owned by Western Mining. Does anyone remember him?

My maternal grandfather, Charlie Holmes, is the man on the left on the back row. He was an electrician in the works for about 30 years and lost parts of several fingers in an accident. He retired about 1970. I have seen this photo before as we have a copy in the family.
