We were told in March 1977 if we were off on the Saturday we would be sacked. Well I was getting the bullet in May because I would be 18 so I went anyway Needless to say P45 on the Monday. Waterloo Dole the following Monday

Welcome to the site Bill. If you are referring to my post, I'm afraid Frank died several years ago of Cancer. What years were you there?
filsgreen wrote:Hiya Bill, yes, Frank was a top bloke with a very dry sense of humour. Frank and my Dad played for the County quiz team, which was based at the Maghull Country club. I was there from the October 1975 to March 1977. With getting the sack for taking the Saturday off for going to the League cup final, I had no chance of being kept on. I loved working there, the smell of fresh bread at 5am was great, once you got downwind of the Peerless of course.
