Ken did not shy away from the task of taking the Group from the comfort and support of Mill Hill and its postal empathy to the unknown that was Grantham, and being part of a very large TA organisation.
After two stints as an Operations Controller, in Eastern Postal Region and later with North East Postal Board, split by a spell as Head Postmaster Sheffield Ken returned to Manchester as the District Head Postmaster (one of the UK’s big five offices).
My enduring memory of him is in the old Mess bar at Mill Hill, climbing onto the bar, turning his back to the crowd & performing a back somersault, to land on his feet in their midst!
What a glorious & memorable character, who we all remember with deep affection.
He enjoyed playing golf and watching rugby – from his local club – Rochdale – to internationals and to league games at his hometown Wigan.
He died on 25 May after a long and painful illness, which he bore with courage and his brave good humour.
With the 1992 reorganisation Ken was promoted to Director and General Manager SWSW and moved to Gloucester.
