One Man’s War

Joe Nethercott now lives in Newport, South Wales. After the war he worked as a garage mechanic in Minehead, eventually becoming the manager of the garage. He then moved to Exeter to manage another garage business, for several years, before moving to Newport in the same role. He then established his own car dealership business, before eventually retiring.

He is a Fellow of the Institute of the Motor Industry, and is still very active in the Institute.

Happily, though now in his nineties. he is in good health apart from some mobility problems following four knee replacements!

Comments and questions are welcomed.

He can be contacted via his son at
