Progress Dept

With many thanks to Brian Lisher these 48 names from 1967 - 87

The Progress Dept, from what I remember (I spent a few months in there, with Len Forder and Alan Stuart, who constantly took the micky out of me - thanks to them and to Brian Lisher as I embarassingly had forgotten I worked with them!) went around the works chasing urgent orders, so you where friends (but mates to all) with no one coz they knew you were going to try to flutter your eye lids and get items repaired or manufactured quickly.

I have just realised too, that people moved around the works so much, some names may be listed in other places, so sorry for that, very difficult to keep tabs on everyone.
