Did you check page 9 on this thread? It confirms my date
of enlistment. Hope I'm due some back-pay in arrears! lol!


I saw that 'Arry, but your username then was arry awk, not 'Arry 'Awk, so it looks if you re-registered with a new username in 2008 for some reason.

I'm sure the supplier of gold watches will take both of your identities into consideration when calculating your long service! Regular Smiley

'Arry

I think there's more than a few of us who, for what ever reason, re registered and are showing "newer" joining dates.

I joined in April 2007 under a different name but a cockup at My end meant a re register and hence a different name and date.

As long as You know when You joined that's all that matters.

Thanks Tasa! Have to wear one on each wrist then? (Or mebbe
keep one for Sundays! LOL)

Thanks everyone for jogging the old brainbox! I do remember now
having to re- register with a slight variation of the nickname.
(insertion of apostrophies) Talk about a split personality!

Those glass tanks of orange juice at head height on cafe counters with the juice in perpetual motion.    


Hi Cardi. In the days of cycling to all points of the compass
around Leeds circa 1945-47, we would stop at Lawnswood
en-route for Otley/Ilkley etc, and slake our thirsts at the tram
terminus, from an open ice-cream van that had one of those
glass tanks full of orange juice which had plastic orange coloured
balls circulating around inside! (I think it must've been run off
the van's battery cos the engine was always running to charge
it up). The "Orange Juice" was now't to shout about,being mainly
orange flavouring crystals, but it 'whetted our whistles' after the long slog up from Headingley on a hot day! Yes! We used to have
lovely hot days then! The Juice cost a penny per small glass,which
the man would swish round in a bowl of muddy looking water
when you'd finished and stand it upsidedown on the counter!
H&S what?

Hi 'Arry.

I worked at various places that sold them then ended up as a self employed Kango hammer service engineer which I packed in just before Milwaukee/Atlas Copco acquired Them.
