The Old Almondburians
Austin Holroyd left School after the Fifth Form to join the Public Assistance Department of Huddersfield Corporation. Then after a spell as a lorry driver (no licence being required in those days!) he joined the Navy and spent over three years travelling around the far east. At the end of the War, in 1946, he joined a small foundry in Huddersfield, Crowther & Gee Ltd and in due course became its owner. The company was sold in 1986, at which point Austin joined forces with his son and a friend to set up a rubber mouldings company, Huddersfield Polymeric, which was sold on Austin's retirement in 1992.
