A Memory of Beckenham

Does anybody remember Muirhead Vatric fatory in Elmers End, near the railway station? I worked there in 1989 (ish) just for a short while, but my Dad worked there during the WW11. Did anybody else work there during the war who might remember my Dad - Frank Hyde? If so would love to hear.
