English Electric Early Days

Started at English Electric Luton, shortly after graduating from Rotherham Tech.    Was only there for a short  initial period.  Jul, 1956 – Sep, 1956..

More or less settling in and doing a little lab work, working on some of the value units for the Airbourn Trials receiver.  Then I was offered a place on the Trails Team at Defford.  Not sure about this as I had only just settled in – nor if this would be a good career move.  But decided to give it a go and relocated in Sept 1956.

For this short period I was living at one of the Company endorsed hostels 48 Downs Road.   Shared bedroom, coin in the slot heating.  Seperate canteen, canned fruit for desert every day.
