James, Vincent John.
My father who died in 1984 was born in Bargoed in South Wales in January 1918 and left school at 16 with a matriculation (1934). Like many very young men from South Wales at the time left Wales to find work. He came to stay in Coventry and after finding casual work then manged to get an apprenticeship as Tool Maker at Standard Triumph. Dad did not start his apprenticeship at 16 but I don’t know how long he was doing causal work before he got the apprenticeship. He told us In the summer of ‘39 he was doing war work which we probably wrongly assumed was to do with military vehicles. Dad told us as soon as his apprenticeship was served he was made a Reserved Occupation category worker and ‘posted’ to work for the Ministry of Aircraft Production. Dad later got posted, I don’t think he had any say in it, to various places around the UK as an inspector of munitions (Ministry of Munitions?). Dad went on to train as draftsman, we think post war given the munitions related roles, and worked as a design draughtsman till his retirement.

Rear axle inspector: I worked at Standard Triumph for 40 years, 27 of which were at the Capmartin Road site. At 16, I started doing my apprenticeship with Standard, working on the Vanguard, but then moved to Radford with the factory. I built the very first Herald through to the very last, only leaving when the plant closed in 1986. It was my job to make sure that nothing got through that wasn't perfect. I remember one car I owned where everything had to be replaced, except for the rear axle, that was the only thing that hadn't been changed!

DECEMBER 2020.
We are really pleased to announce we have been shortlisted and awarded £500 of match-funding by TownsWeb Archiving.

TownsWeb Archive
The British Motor Museum hold thousands of original Standard Triumph factory negatives, many of which were taken by Frank Callaby – that’s Frank in the photo, an employee at Standard Triumph. The photo was sent to us, as many others are, by his family. The vast majority of these Standard Triumph negatives have never been digitised or even seen in years. We have applied for funding to allow a number of these unseen negatives to be scanned and ‘unlocked’ to share some amazing hidden secrets of the Standard Triumph factories and their employees. Whilst we missed out on the big prizes of £3,000 we are really pleased to have been shortlisted and awarded this funding. It’s such an exciting opportunity for Standard and Triumph enthusiasts, local people, ex-employees and their families and social historians.

Now we need to ‘match’ the £500 in donations to secure this award. Can you please help?

We are looking to raise a further £500, to thus raise £1,000, in total.
You can make a donation using secure Paypal, albeit you do not need a Paypal account, most credit/debit cards are accepted.
We are using Paypal for the very best security. We get no card details from you.
You can also help simply by sharing the post, to local groups, friends or anyone who may be able to help us.
Thank you.

Here’s what TownsWeb Archiving said
“With only three grant awards available it was a really tough choice for our judges, but yours stood out as a project that should be recognised and, ultimately, shortlisted. Making the shortlist means that we can offer you £500 of match-funding to put towards your digitisation project. We hope this alternative cash injection will be a financial boost towards realising the vision set out in your application.”
