Birfield Apprentice School - we learned the use of the full range of advanced engineering measuring tools including: External and internal micrometer, Depth Micrometer, Vernier Caliper, Vernier Protractor, Vernier Height Gauge, Dial Test Indicator, Slip Gauges and Sine Bar, I still have The Engineer's Toolkit we were required to purchase at the apprentice school, unfortunately some items have been mislaid - but not lost.

When wondering around the streets of Witton, Aston and Erdington having a Brummie accent wasn't an issue (obviously) but some years later, when living in Bournemouth, between jobs and on a bridging course, I got asked, by a course member,: Do you think having a Brummie Accent has held you back career-wise? Up until that time I had never even considered that possibility. :-[

STL Football team - all works teams had to get back into shape after the Christmas and New Year festivities so I suppose you could say it was a level playingfield.
Happy New Year.

During my time at STL (1965-74) one of my favourite lunchtime constitutions was to circumnavigate The Villa ground, the place was always deserted, very much like now, thanks to The Coronavirus.
