Re: Eddie Mole

So sorry to hear this;I worked at Cranbrook with Eddie whist the three Freds were there and Eddie added much to those great times. Subsequently I met Eddie at Cranbrook during Bob's tenure as manager. A very sad loss of a truly great guy....R.I.P. Eddie

Re: GRAHAM MEWETT (GRADE 7 - HEADQUARTERS)

Yes..Graham really was one of those "good bosses" back in the halcyon directorate days of 70s and 80s;when management was built on common sense;real ability and common decency...a true benchmark for that which was to come...Rest in peace Graham.....Allan

Well...if they offer say 10% increase now it only takes 3 years of inflation at 3.5% to wipe it out...think it more likely to favour the company than the pensioner.theres a suprise...not...Regards Allan
