Barry Ruddock, 1975


I have just come across your website with particular interest in the above company for whom my father and I both worked - my father from 1937 and myself from 1958 - both until approx. 1970.

Please find attached 2 photographs that could be of interest.

The first shows my father (Southern Area Sales Manager (centre)) receiving a selling award from Frank Jones (Sales Director). Seated is Sir Alec Hastilow (Chairman).

The second image is of DB's Southern Depot at Milford, Surrey where my father had his office.
