My grandad worked there from the age of 14 (about 1939), but signed up to the navy aged 15 (after lying about his age!) and returned to work here after the war (1945/46) as jobs were kept open. Worked here until everyone was made redundant. He worked on both Standard and Standard Triumph, and I think he worked in the gear box room.Submitted by: Kayleigh Thomson
