Josephine and David Naughton

I met my husband when I was motor company nurse

My husband and I both worked at the Standard Triumph.

My husband was a paint sprayer and I was a works sister. I started at Canley then moved to Fletchamstead and then moved to Tile Hill surgery. It was there I met David.

He came in to have drops in his ears after a big ear operation. On Valentine’s night I was taken to the dance by a couple called Ted and Dorothy Smith. Ted worked with David.

I hadn’t seen David since the dance, but then he went to Manor House Hospital for a check-up. He came in and had his drops in his ear then he asked me to the pictures!

That was in February and we married in June. I have a picture of David receiving his wedding gift, and one of myself receiving a present from the staff.

Sadly, I had to leave in 1970, as I was going through a rough pregnancy, and David was made redundant in 1972-73.

We had some great times there and lots of laughs.

Mrs Josephine Naughton,  Stoke Aldermoor.
