Hi Phil

Many thanks for your comments, very pleased you can relate to it. I remember your father when he worked at Bassetts, as our time there briefly overlapped. If you have any photos you wsh to post on here then let me know as I am thinking of creating a gallery page for general Bassetts photos with peoples comments and anecdotes.

Your web pages brought back very fond memories to me. My father Alan Mitchell worked for Baseets for nearly 30 years. He retired in 1992, died in 2009. He drove an AEC Mercury four wheeler for many years (8793 RE I think). He had one off the Mickey Mouse eight wheelers for about six months. Atkinson Borderer MRF 672L which he wrote off on the M6, Sed Ak CRF 672T and a few ERF's after that, the last job he did for a few years was paper from Shotton. I spent many a happy hour with him as a lad with some great Guys, Bob Ellis, Ernie Ward, Butch, Knocker. Don Tomkinson, Lenny Oldfield, Alan Gratton. As a boy when my feet could reach the pedals I drove the stacker truck, certainly would not be allowed these days! The "Old Man" (Reg) used to put a ten bob note in an envelope and give me my "wages" .
if you have any more photos I would love to see them, I have always wondered what happened to "Mr Cocoa" the AEC my Dad drove. I saw a picture of it in "flickr" that said it might have been sold for restoration.

Great site, great truck Craig, so wish I lived closer, would love to give you a hand with the greasy bits of ownership.

Hi Craig, Good to see you have got the site up and running with some really interesting material well done. I know from experiance that it can be quite a daunting task getting your site looking right and adding all the pictures etc.
All the best
Regards Paul
