My name is Robert Hughes, I was an instrument apprentice until 1974 when I was regraded as a student apprentice and transferred to Drakelow, I took a supernumerary post at Staythorpe in 1976 in the instrument department, gaining a permanent post at High Marnham in 1978 in the planning department, where I am to this day reaching the giddy height of planning engineer, But sadly not for much longer, being forced into voluntary severance with the pending closure of High Marnham.
