Any old SS drivers and draymen out there that remember what it was like driving the fleet vehicles in the 1970's and 80's. Whilst at college I worked at the brewery part-time inside the various departments and out on the road delivering. The journeys down to a brewing base (bottled beers, barrels and kegs into the Coventry area (I think) two three times a week. I remember there was 1 lorry (I think it had the number 43) that was a flying machine -- driving that at 70 mph no prob -- would touch 80 at a push -- with a full load -- interesting experience going round corners and keeping the load in tact!!!!!! Bearing in mind what the speed limit was like in those days -- the lorry I hasten to add was not seen much around Taddy. Regularly you would see SS wagons travelling up and down the A1 - in those days the vehicles advertised the brewery logo / info on the body frame -- not sure whether that is the case nowadays.
Here's an idea for a new section memories / funny stories of what it was like working for the brewery all those years ago -- I enjoyed it and it did me no harm loved SS OBB (on cask) from that day on.
