No Dave, Unfortunately he died due to very bad burns to his whole body. Maybe in the mid to late fifties. He was a mate of my Dad Dave Stevenson who also had half of his hand chopped off when a large lump of metal fell onto him about 1956 ish.

The three Holden brothers, Alex Staff,Wolstenhome Penny, Jack Hargreaves, Jack Heys to name a few. had the sad news that two guys from the tool room, Alan Pearson and Charlie had passed away last year. Alan was my apprentice instructor in the training school, and also my foreman in the heavy machine shop.


I later took my voluntary redundancy in the mid seventies, and moved to Dusseldorf, Germany. Later was employed by a German company to travel internationally as a service technician. Worked in the middle east for some time, and then was asked to relocate to the USA, and got involved in the construction equipment sales business.

Bulloughs was, and will always be, a good memory for me, not just the building , but the people that worked there.

Those number on bullers checks were used over an over agin as people came and went. I have bullers check numbers in my Accrington Heroes lists, of those who worked at bullers, joined up, and were then discharged back to Bullers on munitions, and were given a different set of checks, so only bullers would ever know who was who at any given time. And as with all other things, there are some real clangers, some dated as leaving before theyd even started, some dated as leaving weeks after they'd left, and were at Caernavon.
