    "Twenty minutes mid shift was the allotted time for bait when all the machinery became idle.  This was no picnic, no fancy biscuits or fairy cakes.  Spam or jam 'door step' sandwiches washed down with tap water from a sometime rusty tin water bottle were the order of the day.  In earlier times the sugar content in the jam was the only way to quickly boost energy levels.  Fancy chocolate bars were unheard of."
