A picture I posted in 2013 from the CET 25th Septmber 1953 in the Central Hall. A talk was given by Mr W H Lindsey, director and chief engineer of Armstrong Siddeley, to the members of the members of the Freemans Guild, a Mamba turbo prop. My step grandad, third from the right with the moustache and his dad behind him. Both worked at the Gauge and Tool.

Annewiggy, Yes, when it was being tested it was about a twelve feet long, four feet diameter, like a long tin-can, had wires and bits all over it, and we weren't allowed to touch it no matter how much it went on fire. We were told we were only there for fire premiums. Me, I just got myself lost in the long grass of the airfield with a pretty girl. That’s another story.
