factory.............work.............. this  was  a  short  stint  @ the  Jeltek weatherguard  factory   situated  just  east  of  the  Halbeath  roundabout......as  my  work  had  finished  with  Bill Jackson  in Kelty  it  was  off  into the  midst  of  sewing  machines........overlockers  and  frustrated   women.....well the  guys   were  outnumbered  at  least  10/1..maybe  more I  wasnt  complaining.............I  just  a   normal male  looking  for  his  naggins  after  all............I  really  did  enjoy  working  here  must  have  been the  female  company............I  reckon there  were  at  least  100/200 female  factory  staff  and  possibly   15  males...............all in all  the comaderie   in this  place  of  work was  good.........I  remember  running  one or  two  coaches  from the  factory  up to the  Wheel Inn  @ Scone   Perthshire
I  had  a  decision   to make  stay  at  the  factory  and  get  trained  up as  a  machine  mechanic  or.....leave  and  go   and  work in the  coal-mines....the  latter  won mainly  because  of  the  wages.............I   have  recently  added  this  memo as  I  came  across  a  site http://www.lakelandelements.com  that  reminded  me  of  the  Jeltek  and  its   of  this  that  I  decided  to put  this  memo up....although  it  was  a  short  stint  at  the  Jeltek possibly  9/12 months.......I  still managed a  few  notches on the  bed-post.............wonder  where  there  are  now ? not  the  notches  the  women.....................well  I  hope  someone  reads  this................regards
