I never knew a lot about my grandparents and often wish that I had asked more questions about their lives, and that's why I have written this short account of my working life. Definitely not an autobiography, this book is a series of anecdotes covering my working life, which as you can see from the title was almost entirely working for 'boards' - namely the National Coal Board, the Gas Board and the Construction Industry Training Board.
I hope this will explain to my family, especially my grandson who is growing up in a world totally different to mine, what life used to be like. I also hope that other readers enjoy the book and realise how quickly the world is changing.
It's Been a Board Life
