Hi All,

I've been trying to find the ROF NOTTINGHAM website. I know it disappeared for a while but I am almost sure It came back. I can not find it at the old url or on google.

Does anyone know what's happened to it?

Regards Paul

I worked at the Royal Ordnance factory-they supported my motorcycling activities quite heavily at the time,though thankfully never found out.

Apparently during WW2, employees wore a lapel badge depicting a ficticious company and location,the idea presumably being that the enemy would be disorientated should the two meet.. It was a proper enamel badge,i think i have one somewhere.

#2 Rob - the picture of the apprentices was taken 2 years after I was in the apprentice training shop. A lot of familiar faces there. Harold Watkin the manager, Ernie Frake the supervisor Mr Slater the admin clerk. Somewhere I have a similar picture taken 2 years earlier.

PP, I'm afraid rob237 passed away about four years ago. He was a great friend of mine.

He was a good man, and a great loss to this site.
