Falloon, JohnSubmitted by: Alan Goodwin Farrell, Larry
Fork Lift, Machinist.
Larry told a little white lie when he started working at the Standard Triumph Canley plant in 1955.
Larry was just 19 when he started as a fork-lift driver and machinist but he and his pals told bosses they were 21 so they could get more cash. We never got caught because they had an 'age amnesty' when they brought in pensions in 1975 and we had to declare our ages. Larry loved working at the plant and says there was an incredible social scene surrounding the thousands of workers. Submitted by: Triumph Works Archive

sheet metal worker Submitted by: Graham Fox
My Father in law Maurice Fox who lived in Arley worked there my husband thinks from sometime in the fifties to early seventies. He used to work at the factory as we think a capstan operator charge hand. Maurice would work at the factory in the week then evenings and weekends he qualified as a driving instructor . He got so busy driving instructing that he finally gave up Standard Triumph and set up Woodside driving school. We also think Maurice's brother Stan Fox worked there, also from Arley.Submitted by: Fox, Christine

Frost, Cliff (Jack)
Cliff started as an apprentice toolmaker in around 1949. He spent most of his time in the Tool Room at Canley, fifteen years of those on permanent nights. In about 1973 he had to come off nights and out of the Tool Room because he contracted bad dermatitis in his hands. He then spent the rest of his time until redundancy in 1980 working on days in the Standards Room.Submitted by: Steve Frost
