Jock's Career

Jock grew up in Scotland, after leaving school he got a job on the railways in Edinburgh. Then aged 18 he decided to join the RAF and during his 12 years' service he rose to the rank of Corporal, his trade was as an aircraft engineer technician. It was whilst based at Marham that he met Annie, the rest as they say is history. They married on 3rd July 1965 . This led on to 53 happy years of married life, initially living in married quarters, but after leaving the forces in 1971, lived in North Lynn, South Lynn then bought their present home on Fairstead.

Being employable and a workaholic Jock was never out of work, he always had something lined up and as soon as he was demobbed he was offered a job at the Docks (BTDB). Jock started work at the King's Lynn Docks on 15th March 1971 as a Crane Inspector and maintenance mechanic.

After completing 28 years service at the port in 1999 Jock was given the opportunity to apply for severance. This he did and subsequently left the Dock whilst holding the position of Chargehand Crane Inspector/Fitter.

Jock then went to HL Foods, Methwold, from there he went on to Campbell's, staying with this company until he retired at the age of 65. Wherever Jock worked he was a loyal, conscientious employee. A "workaholic" having a family to provide for Jock never took a day off sick.

GEORGE Working life.

After leaving school at All Saints and then at St Margaret's, at the age of fourteen he started work for H E George Butchers, who had a shop at the bottom of the Millfleet, King's Lynn, he was often seen riding the trade bike as he made deliveries round the town. After more than a year his father ________ got him work on the Docks.

DOCKS WORK: George started temporary work in April 1963 with the NDLB and was made permanent in May 1964. After the Devlin report of 1967, the NDLB Scheme ended in 1989. George completed 22 years working for NDLB before transferring to direct employment by BTDB who then took up the name of Associated British Ports (ABP). George then worked for ABP King's Lynn till 04/05/2001 as a specialised plant operator, handling cargo in and out of the various warehouses.

In all George had worked at the Port of King's Lynn from 1 April 1963 to 04/05/2001 a total of 38 years, 1 month. George finally left ABP on 04/05/2001.

After a few months George had done all the jobs at home and decided to look around to see if he could find another job. A friend told him he understood one of the timber firms on the docks was looking for someone to work in the timber yard. He applied for the job and started with Pattrick & Thompsons Ltd on 2nd April 2002. He enjoyed being back at work and was really pleased to be working on the dock once again. George continued working with P&T till the end, unfortunately health issues and lengthy treatment did not allow him to return to work again, in spite of telling some of his work colleagues he hoped to return after Christmas 2016.

George managed to clock up a further 14 years and 9 months service with Pattrick & Thompsons, taking him to a total of 52 years and 9 months working on the docks, something he was very proud of.

SPORT.

George loved his sport. It all started with table tennis and with cricket, as well as dominoes and crib but football was always a great love too. He was a goal keeper, always up there with the best teams in the King's Lynn area. Bowls also became a favourite pastime, he was known at bowls for firing, playing with a heavy throw and clearing the decks as he did so. He represented Norfolk in his time.
