On April 15th a visit to the Girling factories was arranged and efficiently handled by Messrs. Sidney Baston, Public Relations Consultants to Girling.
After a pleasant journey from London we were whisked off to lunch, where the managing director. Mr. Alex Fraser, and the senior executives of the company welcomed us. Alter lunch a visit was paid to the development and research factory in Birmingham. At night we were entertained to dinner, and a speech was made by Mr. Fraser.
Next day we were taken by coach to the new Girling factory at Cwmbran, where we were shown the comprehensive range of brakes and dampers which are turned out by the million at this vast ex-Ministry of Supply factory. The return trip to London ended a most interesting and hectic visit .- J.C.M.
