My wife Jenny and I had our photos taken, for the board, at the Information place.
I may be offering information you already have about the early manufacturing of the guernsey. This was started in the 1950’s by Mrs Marjory Renouf who lived at Mon Desire, Bunker Hill, L’Ancresse and was about four doors from where I lived. My late sister worked on the guernseys at Mon Desire when she was young. Mrs Renouf had Knltmaster machines in her house. The ribs, shoulders, neck, under-arm gussets, were all knitted by hand into the main body. All the guernseys had a label with a large R on one side and referred to Mrs Renouf and that the garment was made in Guernsey. The person who could help you with Mrs Renouf is her daughter, Mrs Pamela Dorey, the artist who lives by Kings Mills and whose son Mark is a States Deputy.
