On his work on the railways:

  • I transferred to Grantham and moved to a higher grade of Station Supervisor and Train Crew Supervisor. This involved Station management, day to day running of trains and considerable public contact. I was also the Health & Safety person for the Station and for some reason or other Grantham and the immediate areas seemed to be the places for lorries getting stuck under bridges and suicides on the track. All of which I had to be called to.

  • I stayed at Grantham until I retired. During this time I met several well known people, amongst them the actor Richard Todd, Princess Caroline of Monaco, Gail Platt and Peter Tapsell the MP for Horncastle who was a regular commuter.
