What was your Co-op Divi number?

I have only recently seen a picture showing a signal box originally on the land next to the bridge, Roosevelt Avenue side

I was still using a Co-op divi number until I left the Falkland Islands in 1988. My number was 351

Port Stanley Co-op:

Paulus, I had a good school friend lived on Ambleside Road, name of Elaine Dawson - know her? :) We used to swap comics, as we kids used to back then.

Compo, Re your Port Stanley Co-op sign; when you're in a foreign country, it's always comforting to come across a Co-op sign - we must be mad! :crazy:

Mick - sorry, I've been away for a few days. Yes the signalbox was there, and just below, at the end of Roosevelt Avenue, there was a style (invariably populated by the local trainspotting fraternity). This led to a private footpath that ran along the base of the embankment to the sheet stores - it rose up to track level to cross the Erewash canal. Standing there while a Jubilee thundered past on a London - Manchester express was quite an experience,- nothing but a three rail fence between you and those thumping great 6 foot 9 inch diameter driving wheels. There were a lot of employees at the sheet stores, and an air-raid type siren, that could be heard all over Long Eaton, was used to mark the start and finish of the shifts.

Family name Dawson rings a bell, but 'fraid I didn't know her, I was born at 21 Minver Crescent in '51, we moved to 458 Aspley lane in '62, & I went to St Teresa's RC in Kingsbury Drive, then to the Becket RC Grammar in '62, so didn't have that many friends around the estate.................it was sure tough being a cat'lik in Aspley............not many about!! slywink

Double Nine Three Double Seven. We had Co-op deliveries for just about everything when we moved to a new estate in Arnold. Milk, bread, groceries (in a big library-type van), coal. Then a row of shops was built locally which took most of the business away from the Co-op delivery people. Now that lovely row of shops has become a load of takeaway outlets and everyone shops at Asda, Sainsburys and Tesco .......... not the Co-op !!

It's strange how so many can remember these things fifty years on.

I suppose it's like my dad never forgot his army number from the war.
