BROTHERS IN UNITY

Sir, - May I through the medium of the Journal express my sincere appreciation of all the assistance afforded me by Head Office, Bro. Don Pullen and Bro. Johnnie Wallis, Branch Secretary, St Leonards, following the terrible accident at Hither Green in 1967 in which I found myself involved.
In my view nowhere could we wish for finer representation at times of trouble than that given by our Trade Union - the “Associated”.
The satisfactory financial settlement that the Society obtained on my behalf from the B.R.B. is very deeply appreciated.
My most cordial thanks and good wishes for the future.

BRIGHTON (2) BRANCH


Our November meeting was marked by the presence of our General Secretary Bro. Ray Buckton, and on behalf of the Branch and members of other local Branches who were present.I wish to thank Bro. Buckton for his up-to-date address, which covered all of the current negotiations, and for the able way in which he dealt with the lively debates which followed.

A most enjoyable evening for us all, and we hope that it will not be too long before this Branch has the pleasure of his company again.
