ARCHIVE: February, 1973
All the big factories in the 50s and 60s had a Nursing Sister in charge of the medical centre. We wouldn’t have survived without the medical staff.
Must have been a very busy job considering the absence of all health and safety rules that now exist. I worked at Standard Triumph in the 60s and believe me some of the jobs I did would now be illegal.
I started work at the Jaguar Browns lane in the saw mill, it was the Nursing Sister at the factory who told me to get out, as my nose streamed with blood every time we machined Mansonia, a hardwood from Borneo.
