Jennings, Fred
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!
