Callow, Cyril
A close family friend, Cyril Callow worked at Tile Hill Standard as long as I knew him. He never married and his brothers, one was William Callow of Callow and Maddox, and Lord Mayor of Coventry, are all long gone. Cyril was at Tile Hill during the war and I think he worked first at somewhere near Cash's Lane and said Sir John Black was often seen there. He bought a new Standard 8 about 46/7 then a Vanguard KKV866 in 1951 and later taught me to drive in it. He passed away at my parents house in July 1965 after a massive heart attack. He would have been 61. He was a quiet, helpful chap, who enjoyed taking his caravan on holidays, usually with my parents and myself. Still fondly remembered.

Carver-Smith, John William Thomas (Jack)
My father John William Thomas Carver-Smith commonly known as Jack worked in the tool room as a centre lathe turner for many years. He worked first at Cornercroft Engineering (Mr Corner and Mr Croft) but left for more money at Standard Triumph. He returned to Cornercroft for a while but was persuaded to go back to Standard Triumph where he worked until his forced retirement. He drove a Standard Vanguard until 1964 when he bought a brand new Triumph Herald for £515. Ex works. He ran that for ten years and then took advantage of the company discount to buy a Triumph Dolomite. I remember Dad used to do a lot of overtime. Every night and weekends too. He loved his work at Standard Triumph.
