I was a messenger at Cambridge from 1955 to 1958. Names I remember are Brian Fordham,Pete impey,Vernon Impey, Barry Howchin,Alby Ellis,Ivan Butler,Peter Cox(who I think Died in a motorcycle accident on Coldhams Lane bridge) and Len Bundy.
Percy Martin was the PHG in charge of us down in the basement under the Post Office counter area,we were later moved to a room at the back of the office next to the PO telephones battery unit with a ramp we had to ride down to get out on to the road.
Great days and lots of very fond memories and the not so good ones like getting soaked to the skin in the rain and frozen fingers after delivering to Papworth Hospital in snow and ice (took me about two hours)
P.S.just remembered Jack Hart who who showed me the ropes when I arrived at Cambridge from Dagenham PO where I started my career.
My email email@example.com if anyone wishes to share memories
P.P.S other names just come to mind Malc Arnold, Dave(,Diddy) Edwards,Moggy Turner and Ted Taylor.
