Desmond Stratton

By Gill Morris

My father (Desmond Stratton) worked at HL for 42 years from 1924 until he retired in 1966. He started as a general office worker aged 15 and worked up to become joint managing director.

Dad was living in Sperling Road, Tottenham when he joined Harris Lebus where he met Jessica Cumber, they married in 1936 and had four children.

I remember the Christmas parties and Dad regularly going off to Remploy.
