Arthur Hayes, ware carrier
Crica 1960

Arthur was known as ‘Little Arthur’ as he was very short. A wonderfully cheerful man, he was popular with the tourists; he would lean the board downwards and when they asked him why the pots didn’t slide off he would say that he had nailed them on! He used to tell them that he was six feet tall when he started but the board had put him down to four feet. He played crib with me at lunchtime in the canteen and loved to go to the’ X’ films popular at the time but they wouldn’t let him in as he appeared to be a boy so he got his six feet friend to get the tickets!
