  7. HI CATZ / Nice of you to answer, I am now living in Swinton , Manchester, but still miss Nottingham, I will be 75 in March and I look back on my life , and were iv,e been , but I would not change it for anything. I have met some great people and have great memory s, but I would not go back on the road with all the red tape involved in it, I had 43 years in the transport ind, and retired in 2003,

Catz / you say you were at Marshalls in 1979- onwards , can you recall :- John Taylor, John Tinker, Dennis Wright, Jim Alvey, Fred Preistman, and many more , I worked for Marshalls twice in my life time , as Driver & in the Garage under Transport Repairs as charge hand mechanic, also work up Balloon woods under Keech,s in their Garage. Best job I ever had , Dennis Merrin.
  9. Michael Booth, I think you find me right when I say Stirland & Dakin were once as furniture removers in their early days, they had a furniture warehouse & depositary at the top of Talbot st near canning circus, in their very early days. when their partnership collapsed, Jack Stirling, for a short time , joined force with A.R.Marshall, and the company went under the flag of M&S Transport once again they split and they went under their own way. after some years , J Stirland was bought out by Transport Development Group. and Marshalls
  10. Frank, The names you are after, would that be Malc Pridggin & Sid Freestone, before Sid came to Marshall,s he ran the pub called the Appolo, next door to Marshall,s on Hucknall Lane I don't think it is there now , I believe it has been demolished. I knew them some years ago as I used to drive for Marshall,s , and also I was a charge hand in the garage. (Transport Repairs)..,
  11. steel cowboy, I worked with Bill (jock) Kelly some years ago, when we both Drove for F.V.S (Freeman Volkers & Stuart) from Stockton on Tees. He did the night Trunk from Nottm- to - Stockton and back, I was on regular days running West Midlands & London. He was a bit of a lad, But a great bloke to get on with. There were three artic,s and six drivers based in Nottm at the time , the day men parked the trucks to were they lived,
