Lanarkshire Works loading bank foreman Harry Martin has retired after 46 years’ service.
Harry began his career at the works in 1927 at the big straightening machine. He progressed through being a slinger and stocktaker to becoming foreman in 1934.
Thirty colleagues attended a function at the Golden Lounge, Wishaw, where loading banks manager Hamilton Jardine presented Harry with a gift of money on behalf of his many friends at the works.
Our picture shows Harry receiving his farewell gift from Mr Jardine.
