Happy Fathers Day to all Digger Dad’s

Digger Blogger | 10:55, Sun June 19 2011

A little celebration here on the Digger Blog today for all the special Dad’s who passed on their experience, knowledge and skills to their son’s, and in some instances, daughters in years gone by.

The JCB song by Nizlopi, which reached the number one spot in the charts on the 18th December 2005, epitomises the relationship between me and my father, and I am sure many others in our industry can relate to its lyrics as well.

I first started to accompany my Father to work in his JCB when I was 8 years old and hardly ever missed a weekend with him until I was about 14, when other interests started to take over!

I dedicate this song to the man I owe everything to, my late father Jim Drew, who is up there somewhere in Digger heaven, and to all machine operators past and present, who have taken the time to pass on their skills to their offspring.
