Canteen Staff

By John Green

My Mum, Jean Green nee Wakeman,  worked in the Tilbury Docks Canteen and on the mobiles as a kitchen hand. She is second on the left in the photo which would be late 1940's. I don't recognise anyone else.

My Dad - Arthur Green - worked for Mowlem's in the Dock as a plumber and that is where they met. He was repairing a sink in the canteen when she emptied a bucket of water down the sink while he was laying with head in cupboard with sink waste disconnected!
