Famous Leyland People
How many famous Leyland People are there?

Recently Jason Robinson shot to fame as a Rugby World Cup hero. There's a famous Leylander in the pop group Liberty X although, I don't know his name. Not forgetting the pioneers on Leyland Motors.

How many more can we name?

What about the "Lady" who paraded outside the Post Office during the War - was her name, I forget, she used to wear a fur coat and always had a word for the lads. (very tongue in cheek, sorry) I`ve mentioned before, Sergeants Pollitt and Turner of Leyland Police, they were famous!! and what about Butcher Lord? W.R.
