KINGS MILLS DELIVERY VEHICLES

ADDED 6 FEBRUARY 2007

How pleased I was to see the photographs of the delivery vehicles of ‘KMK’ (Kings Mills Knottingley), as supplied by Ken James. The vehicles would have been supplied new by the former South Yorkshire Motors.

In the very early 1960s I worked at Kings Mills as a delivery driver alongside John Bedford and Alan Pearson in addition to about another six local men and it brought back many happy memories of my former workmates and times at King’s Mills.

I have driven the vehicles depicted on the photographs for many miles delivering flour and animal feeds to customers. The Company was owned by three brothers; Dennis, Pat and Noel Donavan. The picture of the driver, from memory, was Noel Donavan, who I think lived in Pontefract, while Dennis lived in Darrington and Pat in South Milford.

One of the tasks which we had to do was to take Arthur Clayburn to their homes to look after their gardens!
