Does anyone recall and incident in the mid 1960s regarding a trip to Manchester, in which, I believe 3 lads from the company were killed when the coach in which they were travelling broke down on the Manchester viaduct? Apparently, it was dangerously foggy and the lads jumped over the wall to take a field break, not realizing that they were on the viaduct and fell to their deaths. I do recall the name of one of the lads, however, I do not wish to name him in case there are still relatives on this site. I am curious if anyone knows more about this incident.

I failed to mention that the lads worked at CG&T Co., at the time.

Hi, I was there from 1969 until about 1976. I completed my apprenticeship and then moved into Inspection under Alan Lockhart.

Hello. I'm disappointed there are so few posts on this topic. I was a student apprentice from 1961-1966, studying at the Lanchester and working in various departments between college terms. After graduating I worked in the Design Office under Ray Palmer. But in 1970-1972 they sent me to UMIST to study again for an M.Sc. Fortunately for me but unfortunately for them I met my wife "up north" so I left soon afterwards. Ray was very understanding, as was the company for which I was very grateful. I see Matrix is still going in a smaller place still near Fletchamstead and wish them well.
