S. A. Mather & Platt - Paris
S.A. Mather & Platt Front Page
Office Staff, 1954

Baron François de Bellet retired in March 1954.

He was Secretary to S.A. Mather & Platt when this group photograph was taken and had, by then, been associated with the company for over forty-four years.

His health, at this time, was not the best. His friends in Paris were anxious, therefore, that his leave-taking should not be entirely 'official'; but it was not until May of that year that he was well enough to attend a small ceremony held in his honour.

On May 19th, he received a long-service medal issued by the French Ministry of Labour and was presented with a chiming clock from the firm in recognition of his long and faithful service.

Mr. J. D. Paybody and Mr. George Roberts were in Paris at the time and represented Park Works, Manchester at the ceremony.
