My name is John Lainchbury and I joined the Post Office in January 1956 as a Junior Postman. I started work at Head Post Office in Pinfold Street Birmingham delivering telegrams to all parts of the city. Other duties were at Cable and Wireless in Great Charles St then moving to West Midlands TMO in Bearwood on the Hagley Road. In 1957 I entered the Midland Region Sports Federation Angling competition at Peterbourgh on the rive Nene. To my surprise I came first in the junior section with a weight of 1lb 6ozs. I almost through my catch back in the river but was told to keep it for the weigh in. I held the cup for 12months and also received a medal which you can see you can see below. I hope this item will be of interest you. Best Wishes John.
