HAVE seen some interesting references recently con' cerning presentations to old employees. It might interest you, and the readers of " The Commercial Motor," to learn that on November 1 we had a presentation, in the Metropolitan Area Branch of this organization, to one of our staff—Mr. A. F. Aster—who is leaving us on attaining the age of 65. He was with this company first in Hogarth Lane on the steam-vehicle side, then went to the Chiswick Works when they. started making motor vehicles, and later moved to the new branch at Vauxhall. He joined the company in 1905.
At the presentation there were several other employees who are still with the company and who have even longer service. The foreman—Mr. R. D. Huxley—has been with it since 1903; Mr. H. T. Cramner, the copper ' smith and welder, since 1900; Mr. J. H. Thompson, who is the repair shop charge-hand, was Mr. Arter's mate when he joined the company in 1905. Of the present employees of this branch 13 have now over 25 years' service with the company. LESLIE A. HARRINGTON (Metropolitan Branch, John I. Thornycroft London, S.W.1. and Co., Ltd.).
