Awesome photography and a excellent subject.
WOW! some great pictures there Martin, Good images, clean & clear.
I served a Student Apprenticeship at Strand Rd./Salmesbury/Warton in the 1945-1951 time frame.My father , George C. King was Works Accountant there for many years.
I ended my engineering career as an aerospace/systems engineer at TRW in Redoddo Beach, California in 1988. My sister was a tracer at Warton as well.
I now live in Los Osos, Calif. and have recently started to try to find out what has happened to the many people who I worked with there...such as W.C. Roland Beaumont, Frank Roe, Ollie Heath .I have such marvellous memories of it all .
When my Dad passed away (years ago now ) , we met with the person who was compiling a history of E.E. and turned over many , many documents and data relating to my Fathers years there , including his years of representing E.E. in the Palace Shield (cricket) , etc. I wonder what has happened to it all?
How can I find out more ??
Fantastic site with somewonderful photo's. Keep up the good work, look forward to some more great shots. Thank you for sharing them all.
Wonderfull stuff that really takes me back.I cabed every Deltic when they came in for mods/snagging at the Vulcan(inside information from my uncle,then under the sportsfield gate).Started my Apprenticeship there in 1965 and worked on the Type 4s, mainly on the bogies and snagging.Still remember the names Garnett Mills,Ernie Picton and Bob Leicester,i learnt a lot off them men!
