PAUL BRITTAIN (ROMSLEY)

Post by Steven Cole » Tue Jan 18, 2011 8:25 pm

It is with sad regret to announce that Paul Brittain died on Sunday 16th January 2011 at 21:45hrs following a period of illness. Paul is survived by his wife, Pat. Further details will be posted as they are made known to the webmaster.

Webmaster Note
I'm so saddened to hear of Paul's untimely death. My early recollections of Paul was meeting him soon after I joined the Directorate in early 1970 as a 'rookie' technician based at Romsley. His friendly and unassuming outgoing approach was a great help to me during my early months whilst I made the transition from mending 405/625 televisions to maintaining radio communication equipment. Our paths crossed on a number of occasions during the intervening years as we progressed our respective careers and I always enjoyed our encounters.

My condolences to Pat and his family.

Steven R. Cole....

I can only agree with Steve here: a friendly and unassuming person, if ever I saw one. If anyone could steady a ship, I think it was Paul.
I knew Paul when he was a TTE2 (I think that was the Grade - formerly CWT) at Romsley, and I remember well how readily he engaged with colleagues in different roles within the Home Office/DTELS - everyone knew him, and everyone liked him, and he would always come and say hello.
