I relish army memories of Henderson’s

Have your say

All the publicity over Henderson’s Relish reminds me of when I was in the army 1967.

I and another Sheffielder were thumbing a lift back home on a weekend pass.

South of London we were picked up by another soldier of a similar age driving a new Humber.

He told us the car was his father’s, who ran a company in Sheffield which we would not have heard of.

Much to his amazement we both said we had, it was Henderson’s.

He told us that his father had a flat over the company where he stayed Monday to Friday.

The driver would not believe we knew of Henderson’s as no one had heard of it in South London.

I now live in East Yorkshire but still read The Star every day and return with Henderson’s after visits to Sheffield.
