Steel Wheels and Rubber Tyres Volume 3 - A General Manager's journey
Geoffrey Hilditch, General Manager at Halifax, received a rude awakening when he read he was to lose his job thanks to Barbara Castle. His subsequent time as Engineering Director at West Yorkshire PTE was difficult, throwing money into the unknown was alien to him, and his reign was short. Moving to Leicester should have put matters right but it seems he had moved out of the frying pan into the fire. This turbulent period of his career forms Part 3 of his fascinating autobiography.
