Tony ended up as a deputy in the headings down the North side and was a bit of a nob, good header but a power mad deputy.

Still into radio and pirates JW.Oops

Of course still messing with wireless Innocent,trying to recall you but you will have to remind me.My rememberance of Tony is when him and his buddy got knicked for pinching saddles from somewhere Alfreton way.And me bollocking him for trying to smash a phone because it was engaged,he was trying to ring Cogger the nightshift overman.

Tried playing the hard man with me and lost, tried reporting it which as you know wasn't the done thing, and tried using the headers as witnesses. None of them saw a thing of course and suddenly his new car got seriously damaged which he tried blaming me for.

Just so happened I was abroad that week and its only recently I found out which of the headers did it, all of them as they knew I was abroad.

I was the one who put the CB aerial at the top of the headgear with Addy and him, Geoff Clay (no longer with us) Mog Hines, and Frank Cheeseman used to wind people up.
