H. F. Morton
Herbert Frederick Morton started at Galloways as an apprentice turner at the age of 14. He left Galloways and worked at British Westinghouse in nearby Trafford Park, before joining the army. He was wounded at Gallipoli in 1915, and became a religious education instructor with the army, before being invalided out in 1917.
1917 He went back to Trafford Park, to Ford’s British factory, where he worked as a turner.
1928 he was involved in setting up Ford’s new plant in Dagenham, and came to the attention of Henry Ford. He then worked directly for Henry Ford in procuring engines and other artefacts for Ford’s museum, and ended up shipping and erecting sixty engines in Dearborn. He wrote a book about it, called 'Strange Commissions for Henry Ford'.
