Veronica's friend, Christine Jones has kindly provided the following summary of Veronica's career with the company:

Veronica joined OCL in Liverpool in 1972 when we were based at Aintree Containerbase and became Ken Merchant's Secretary. As a sporty person and Netball player she was heavily involved in the inter regional competitions at most of the OCL gala weekends and would be remembered by many of our colleagues for that reason as she was very competitive!

When we relocated the Liverpool Office to Silkhouse Court (and Ken had moved on to Beagle House) Veronica was Secretary to Bill Moore. In the mid '80s she was looking to relocate to London and when a vacancy arose for a Secretary to assist Ken in Beagle House she jumped at the chance to work with him again. Following Ken Merchant's departure Veronica stayed in London working with Dennis Greenland and Belinda McCormack before leaving to join Gillette.

Veronica moved back to Liverpool for good in January 2016 and we still had plenty of catching up to do with her. We will all miss our dear friend.

Chris Jones
