Rowan Williams, a polite man was a highly skilled litho printer who had a brother Ashley (the ugly one) who worked in typesetting at the Guv. and
Our final leading light is Mr Derry Lockwood, a hardworking and flamboyant machine assistant who had a very loud voice. I believe he lives in the South-East nowadays.

Meg Smart.

This is Meg Smart, who was a bit of a Legend at the Old Guv.
Meg had a few nicknames at the Printer, all to do with having the ability to promote outrageous stories about her co-workers (generally true).
But today she is a intelligent charming, womanly human being with a bubbly nature.
Who did she marry you may ask?
He was a thin, balding young compositor lad callled Trevor Smart (nicknamed Agent 99).
Trevor was a good bloke until he fell under the spell of Alex Riley who become his mentor. It was all downhill after that.
Nowadays, both he and his beloved Meg corral the shopping trolleys at the local Coles supermarket.
Meg Smart of course is the Boss.

I don’t think Trevor Smart has woken up to the fact that Alex the Toff  is no longer his Supreme Controller.
But then Trevor who is a good bloke, isn’t too Smart.
