George Green - Aberdovey, Wales, 1952

I was a apprentice electrician with Alfred Holt Blue Funnel Line and was sent to Aberdovey in 1952. It was the first time I had been away on my own.Iwas attached to Beresford hut and I think it was course 130 or132.I dldnt smoke in those day but some of the lads did .We had to wear blue demen shirt and trousers so when they sneaked out to get cigs they came back without as the shop knew who they were.It was a marvellous experience I remember. I am now 76 but will always remember it all.
