Started as a craft apprentice, trained as an instrument mechanic. Ended up as an Instrument Engineer at Skelton Grange, Leeds.

After privatisation and closure of S.G. worked for a couple of power companies. Have moved up from mA to KA now working for a central team as an Electrical Engineer mainly in C.H.P.s. Started with Dave Bore, Derek Blueman, Syd Knowles and others: are they still out there?
