In October 1952, Mullard made the headlines in that mainstream publication British Textiles!
"Spotless white nylon coveralls and coloured nylon headscarves are worn by all operatives in the assembly room of Mullard's new valve factory. The well-founded reason is that the highest posiible standards of cleanliness must be maintained in an operation so delicate that the presence of lint or dust in the atmosphere could cause deterioration of the valves and nylon being non fibrous creates neither lint nor dust. The girls are given a choice of four colours of headscarf: pink, light blue, green or lemon and it is interesting to note that the pink and the blue far exceed the other colours in popularity."
An interesting report, but I wonder what colour scarf the chaps wore.............
