Notes

Reginald was apprenticed at the age of 14 to the splendidly named Isle of Thanet Gas Light and Coke Co Ltd. He became a qualified gas fitter and after work in the aircraft industry during the war as a riveter, he set up up a business in 1946 with his brother in law and another guy, trading as North Foreland Builders. The business collapsed because in those days building permits were required due to shortage of materials, but a customer who claimed to have the necessary permission lied and then refused to pay their bill. In later years he worked as a plumber (similar to gas fitting) for the Thanet Council.
