Memories of Jess Cornelius Scrivins
My grandfather Jesse Cornelius Scrivins worked at Rotol after WW1 and was a secretary to management.
I can remember going to the Christmas parties at Rotol in the 1940s when we lived in Cheltenham.
Jesse served in WW1 1916 as a linguist, interpreter and radio operator in France with Royal Garrison Artillery.
Note: During WW1, The Royal Field Artillery provided howitzers and medium artillery near the front line. The Royal Garrison Artillery manned the largest guns, especially those mounted in coastal and colonial forts. During the First World War (1914-18), the RGA also manned the heavy guns and howitzers on the Western Front.
