After leaving school aged 16, without any qualifications, Jack Cadman had several false starts before fate directed him towards the flaming hearth and hot metal of the blacksmith's forge. He didn't like labouring and he abandoned a hairdressing course after the first year. Then he was told that a local blacksmith was advertising for an apprentice. It was love at first sight when he arrived at the busy Hampshire forge the following Monday.
