Submitted by: Jamie Sullivan

Hartley, Ramsay 'Mac'
Like his father, Mac eventually joined the Standard Motor Company. He worked his way up to Chargehand and Foreman during the Fifties. He was based at the Radford Machine Shop for over two decades as Night Foreman. He enjoyed a close relationship with colleagues from all walks of life and over the years shared in the lives of men and women who knew him simply as 'Mac'. He was quite a storyteller. He related stories about his childhood days like playing pitch-and-toss, and winning, on his way to school. He told stories about his years at sea, tales which would keep those around him spellbound. He told stories about the goings on during the nightshift at the car factory. In his younger days Mac was a keen and successful darts player in the many local pubs and clubs around Tile Hill and Burton Green. He travelled to pubs and to work every day on his push bike and motor bike. On one occasion, returning home after a night on the ale, he parked his bike in someone else's garden, only realising his mistake when he was chased from their garden by a fierce dog. Mac was described by those who knew him well as a 'sound bloke'. Everyone knew if they needed a favour or wanted to borrow tolls or a few quid, they were always welcome at his home. If you locked yourself out, Mac would find a way in, one way or another. Until parting with his car at the age of seventy, you would often have found Mac on his driveway, wearing overalls, under a car, covered with grease and oil; or in his garage, fixing things or making his own designed replacement parts on his lathe.

Drawing Office. Dad moved to Banner Lane when it was Standard then Massey Ferguson took over the plant and Dad continued with them. I know he worked on the development of the Triumph Herald code named 'Zobo". He did tell me that the Herald was suppossed to have an inward sloping rear window, but Ford beat them to it with the revamped Anglia so it was rapidly changed. I did go into the Banner Lane factory one Sunday as he had some work to do and as a young boy was very impressed when, after finishing his work in the drawing office, he took me down onto the factory where a few people were working and they all said "good morning Mr. Hayden"

In the spirit of the 'doing my bit' I obtained work at the Standard Motor Co factory, Canley, Coventry. I was first employed in the Time Office; to which all prospective employees reported. I looked so young the boss took pity on me and employed me there until I was 15, but did not disclose his reason at the time. Meanwhile I traversed this huge and diverse factory site each morning to collect each employee's 'clock card' for marking up and then returned same to the card holders in the afternoon. The factory's war production covered manufacture of the Blenheim Bomber and the De Haviland Mosquito Fighter/Bomber, together with military vehicle engine production and sundry items; employing some 4,500 personnel.

Hughes, Leslie
I worked in 21 Shop, Canley, from 1963 until 1977. The New Assembly Hall was always called the `ROCKET RANGE` within the factory. At the end of the 2000 production, all the last cars were Estate versions. Carbodies (the company that turned the Saloon bodies into Estate cars) had a lot of bodies left over. Otherwise we normally only did 2 or 3 Estate cars a day. The 2000`s were fully fitted out , but were taken elsewhere to be mounted on their Engines, Gearboxes, and Axles, Etc.

Hutt, Jackie
I worked at Standard Triumph/Leyland Cars from leaving get school in July 1969 to May 1979 when I left to have a baby. I worked in the Planning Department at Fletch North first as a copy typist, typing the instructions to make the cars, then onto being secretary to Mr Vic Ellis, the Production and Plant Engineering Manager. Like lots of other employees have said, it was a great place to work a day the money was OK too.
