From way back as an apprentice in the Machine Room, here is someone with his beloved scooter. I originally thought it was Phil Henry, but Phil has contacted me to say it isn't him. He suggests it could be Ian Moore.
A copy of Air Pictorial, cover printed on the 2 colour Roland Favorit and text on the N.P. 56.

The Coronation Hall July 1967. Clive Martin left of picture, Ernie Chapman, Les Robotham and their ladies. Clive went on to head the Martins Printing Group as Chairman and become Lord Mayor of the City of London and then, Sir Clive.
July 1967. Bob Dunn and Sylvia. They later married and had two sons,-- Robbie and Jason. Bob left Staples at Love Lane and went to Bowaters in Gillingham. He stayed there in its change of owners and upon its eventual closing moved a few yards into a security job at Tescos until he retired.
Practising for the 'March of the Mods' is Graham Tidman. With whom?
Angela Templeman receives the prize for Lovely Costume from Ernie Chapman. July 1967
Admiral Peter Capon is in the middle. On the extreme right with the eye patch, it looks like Chris Noyes.
John Collins, left of picture and Stella Jackson with him. Is that Rose Foy in the middle????
Bernard and Stella Jackson on the left of the picture. They lived in Haig Avenue in Rochester (I think). Bernard was a 'gentle giant'. He was as strong as anything but had a lovely laid back disposition. Bernard was a machine assistant at Love Lane and did a lot of work for C I D A in the social club. Unfortunately I think he fell off a roof mending someones garage and sustained a head injury from which he never recovered.
Jessamy Pilcher in fancy dress. She worked in the Love Lane offices. What a girl she was.
Lee Fairbrother of The Sages.
Providing the music at the ball---- The Sages.
Another good picture. Lee Fairbrother on drums.
Cap'n Barry (Blackbeard) Cox and the enchanting Angela Templeman, they made a lovely pair at the Fancy Dress Ball at the Coronation Hall-------- July 22nd 1967. Reminding us of the old song - "Well I only have eyes, for you".
Keith and Doreen Jarrett. -----Both played a big part in the working days at Staples. Keith also put a great deal of effort into the social side of the works and was also well liked and respected by customers in his later roll as a co-ordinator in the production office.
Cheers! Chris Noyes third from the right with Peter Capon next. Who is that looking very stern on the left?
Clive and Lindy Martin.
Alan Luckhurst having borrowed a wig from someone.
On the right of picture is Jackie Hearn, with Peggy Fairbrother on the left and in the middle is the girl friend of the bass player in the group providing the music. Details kindly given to me by Lee Fairbrother.
On the far right of the picture, I think is Maureen Weedon who worked on the packing bench with a tall dark haired woman named Molly .
From the Fancy Dress ball. The boys are, Ken (on the left) and John Zurowaski.
On the left of this picture is Pat Anning, then Dave Hughes, then Pearl Bennet and Eva Day---- I think Dave and Pat eventually married. You can see Pearl again in pic 13 on page 15 when after Staples, she worked with her daughter, at Rochester Print Finishers. ----Eva always had a 'soft spot' for Bob Dunn.
