The attached photograph shows me as a 16-year-old, then from Wymondham, sitting at my pan of pitch, making brushes whilst employed at the Briton Brush Company in Wymondham in 1948.
I completed my apprenticeship before doing five years as ground-crew in the Royal Air Force
The original photo was published in the Eastern Daily Press.
