“My father was Thomas Bilby, he joined Standard Triumph, when the war finished.  His employment there all the time was was a Security Guard on the gates, he worked there until he retired one year before the factory closed.
My mother Olive Bilby, also worked there before the war in the sewing room, she is still alive and is 100 this year.” Submitted by Elaine Sandall
