Does anyone remember my father - Charlie Gladwell - who worked there?

My Grandfather worked at the second factory in the 'Tool Room'. His name was Fred Bray-Cotton.

Hi Henry (John), I think you have got the story correct about the smallpox outbreak, and the whole factory being held in isolation whilst health officials carried out tests and vaccinations. I was told the same story by Les Roberts who worked in the Kemp Town factory after the war, c early 1950s.

My father, Jim Trangmar, was an inspector at Kearney and Trecker, he left in early 1970. Might be a bit after the dates mentioned here.

Is that the same Jim Trangmar who sadly passed away in September 2015? If it was, I knew him from the  Brighton Trades & Labour Club. He was a very pleasant person.
