    Default British American Tobacco

    I worked in the labs at BAT about 1960-1963

    We used to get an allowance of 60 Ardath cigs/week (50 for the ladies)

    One thing sticks in my mind after all these years was the toilet notices:-

    Staff - ladies and gents

    Shop Floor - Men and Women!!!!!

    Also Staff were not searched - yet shop floor were regularly randomly searched

    Furthermore - canteens:-

    1 for shop floor
    1 for staff
    1 for foremen/supervisors
    1 for junior managers
    1 for senior managers/directors
    Waitress service for the latter two

    Happy days!!

    My father-in-law worked there. Claimed to be the first out to the Union pub when the hooter sounded. My mother-in-law worked along the street in Tillotsons. Both still live in Kirkdale in the flower streets.
