Hello, this is my web site, where I can publish a few details about myself. I was born in July 1936 in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire. I spent the war years at Blackpool with my Mother and Grandmother but returned to Cleckheaton in 1944. At the age of ten I went to Whitcliffe Mount Grammar School and left in 1953 to attend EMI Institutes (later called The EMI College of Electronics) where I took my degree (2nd Class Honours) in Physics and Mathematics together with the City and Guilds Full Technological Certificate in Telecommunications Engineering. In common with the other students on this course I had two periods of "Factory Attachment" at EMI's establishments in Hayes and Feltham. In 1957 I started full time work with EMI as a Junior Engineer.
