Staff of Fisher Ludlow and Betty outside Queens Head Dawley
When I was 13 I lived in Southport and we had 2 evacuees from Bootle, Liverpool. Their names were Myra and Betty Minihan and they were 5 and 11. In January 1940 my family and I moved to Dawley when my father took over the Queens Head, King Street and the evacuees went back to Liverpool and I never saw them again.
I joined the Girls training corps and I worked at Norah Wellings Toy factory in Wellington and then at Mrs Dunn's hairdressing in Dawley, then at Keeley's Tailors in Wellington, doing alterations on service uniforms, sewing on stripes etc.
I also worked at Fisher and Ludlow, a Ministry of Aircraft production dispersal factory, from 1943-1945, in the time office where we clocked all the jobs.
