Just after the main bombing- I worked at Daimler #2 near Courtaulds for a year making aero engines and we were bombed almost every night - can't recall
ever making a full shift - finally moved to Birmingham making Crusader Tanks before call up- we were only bombed once per week….
persistent blighters weren't they. Did you get paid per shift, or for hours worked?
Hope you're keeping well Tom.
Can't recall how we were paid in those days but I do know it was WEAKLY…..fairly well but lungs are getting smaller
Thanks, was only wondering if time on shift was curtailed, even for an air raid, were wages then docked accordingly.
Sorry to hear that - at least the brain is still firing on all cylinders.
