Watts cavalcade of transport

These are some photos of Mr John Watts 80th Birthday celebrations 1965. These photos were displayed in the Citizen office after the event and then given to my brother.

Brian Oliver added: "... The Cavalcade of Transport was organised by Mr Melville Watts in 1965 to celebrate John Watts 50 years in transport not his 80th Birthday. I am on Melville Watts Leyland Fire Engine, Reg No EAX 8. Stood behind the driver behind myself is Rex Morgan. The driver was David Wilks. Seated beside the driver is Tony Wright and stood on the near side is Harry Saint and behind him is Bob Hurst. All employed at the time by Watts Factors".
