Part Number: BOOK03

The story of Les William’s early days, firstly of his mentor “Bill the Mill” during Les’s apprenticeship as a motor mechanic at Central Garage in Brecon. A story of Bill’s childhood at a working Mill after the First World War. Of  his active service in the Second World War and of his days in the Motor trade. Then Les’s  own colourful story of the fun packed days of that apprenticeship leading to his love of motorbikes; and in due course his successful career with Triumph.

This book was written as a tribute to his Mentor and all those ordinary working people that shaped Les’s working life. Read of Bill’s hard early days, the dangers of wartime action in North Africa and Italy, but also love and romance, then too tragedy and death, also the interesting descriptions of Motorcars and Lorries and the characters that drove them. Laugh out loud at some of the apprentice’s antics and what they got away with! Then finally for Les’ to get on the train to start another chapter of his working days, the rest is history as they say?                                                                                                                                       A fascinating book written with genuine dedication. And just to explain it is the custom in Wales, to be called by the first name and the name of one’s home. Hence “Bill the Mill” and “Les. Pen y Banc”.
