Mobil Oil way back

Post by Terry Phillips » Thu Sep 26, 2019 1:46 pm

I was going through his stuff on the top of the cupboard I found a old calender from Mobil then Pegasus SA.I cant tell you how old it is as all the calander date pages where removed. So some pictures but not best quality I am afraid. My Dad joined Mobil in the early 50s after telling the recruting company in the UK that he was a train driver which he was not but he got the job at Mobil as a truck driver.The last photo was of his truck he drove in Northern Rhodesia.

I have an old Mobil Oil sign I got from my Father-in-law.
