I would love to hear from anyone who has memories of my late father, John Stokes, who worked for J Lyons for more than 60 years and died in 1967. He started in the Checking Department at Cadby in 1904, later working in the Stock Department and the Engineering Department before becoming the first Secretary of Normand Ltd in 1921. Thirteen years later he was made Manager of Normand, and was appointed to the Board in 1957. He was still serving on the Normand Board in 1964, when his 60th anniversary of service was marked by the J Lyons directors with the presentation of a gold watch which I still proudly wear on my wrist each day.

My Mum, Ruby Lewis, worked at J. Lyons in Balham, south London, in the l940s. She had a friend there calleded Pat Cheeseman. Mum has a lovely photo of herself with Pat so if anyone knows what happened to Pat I'd be pleased to pass the information on to Mum who still talks of her old friend very fondly.
