I have never seen anything on the above firm, but it was my first job, just 16, and worked in the Advance dept. Now it seems a bit like the Mad Men in the layout. A Mr Cheesmere in charge, Don Young his assistant, two more mature ladies, Cynthia who chain smoked and a Daphne or Vivian? The other “Junior”was Pat, tall and slim with long black hair who lived along Old Shoreham road. We had tea lady with trolley twice a say with the best cheese rolls, a huge dining room heavily subsidised, the managers sat at one end. The top floor was a computer! We had a bus pick us up at Old Steine. Felt very proud to say l worked there just loved it. Any memories to share?
