My Time at Addis Brush Works
By Anthony Powell
Former Addis Brush Works,
I worked for Addis Brush Works I Ware Road, Hertford in 1968 as an 18 year old. I worked in the Q shop. My foreman was Mr Gordon Ellis who was tragically killed coming into work on a foggy morning on his, I believe, scooter. Mr Norman Giles had to take over form Mr Ellis as foreman or should I have said supervisor. My chargehand was Mr Chris Ball. I couldn’t actually tell you who was Mr Ball’s deputy.
At the time my job, however, was, as I can recall, general duties within Q shop.
Addis Brush Works ceased working in Ware Road, Hertford some years ago.
I hope Mr Ball who is no longer with us and indeed Mr Ellis also didn’t mind me writing or mentioning them.
