  • DATES FOR OUR DIARIES

    11 January 2008 04:43, by John Edgar Boyden

    It’s late and I have just put down Alan Vessey’ stirring account of D Napier & Son, and my minds eye goes back to the day that I passed though those Works gates as prospective craft or toolroom Apprentice to be interviewed in the Cottage..the date escapes me but I was just 15 and some looking forward to starting a lifetime machine shop career under the watchful eye (and no doubt influential person) of my father C.H.Boyden, Chief Cost and Wages Clerk.

    The year would be 1935 and in the Cottage..well, was it Mr. Cass. my 5yr Indentured Apprenticeship Parchment has long been stolen..along with other personal docunentation, who ’signed me up’. First job was drg office print boy and thence into the Toolroom to join Cecil Bill Cottee.

      Dear MR Boyden, Would you be so kind as to contact me the Secretary on secretary@napierheritage.org.uk , we in the trust are trying to trace and talk to all former employees before it is to late, as we are all getting older. We would be very interested in your story. Regards Roy
