On 15th Jun 2017 10:51pm, Golden Tonsils said: When I completed the training I took a job with E600 "Test Equipment Engineers", the Manager was DVE Lowe (Dennis). There was HB Baker (Howard), DJ Gee (Dave), FB Mundean (Barry), ME Shearer (Mike), RE Hodge (Bob), RD Keill (Dick), JA Cockrill (John), PW Gray (Peter), JA Moran (John), Aubrey Bicknell, RE Irwin (Ron), Peter Brown, CJ Gladman (Chris), WE Torrance (Bill), HS Dhillon (Matt).
Although I worked at GEC, Spon Street in the 1980s, then Helen Street in the 90s, a few of these names are familiar. Barry Mundean became our Test Manager at Helen St, and earned the nickname of "HIG" from his regular question "how's it going?'. Peter Brown, if it's the same person, became overall chief of the Transmission group, and oversaw the thousands of redundancies in the early 90s - although with hindsight it was probably necessary to keep GPT alive at that stage. I briefly came across others too, although I didn't actually know them to talk to, like Mike Shearer & Bill Torrance, and I think one of my apprentice placements in the early 80s was with Ron Irwin - not exactly one of my favourites if I've remembered correctly! I didn't see Cliff Titterall (not sure of the spelling) mentioned, but I know he had a connection with the Test Equipment department.
