Jim Luxton

If you want a particularly horrible early picture of me see this link on this site Intercom Journal March 1973 Page 6 I have been trying to trace Jim Luxton, John Stokes and Peter...

Unidentified Photos

Steven Yes it may be so. The only thing that seems odd is that I recall Weyhill MU being very much in its infancy at that time. I think elsewhere it says that it was being built in 1970 but I only recall it coming online about 1971-2 a year before I left to join PNC. At that time I know they were lo...

Pictures

Steven, I have a vague recollection of the pictures. I also believe they were pre-exhibition 'scouting' pictures for Leicester University.

Robin Hughes

Extremely sad news. Robin was a great mentor to me as he designed, in conjunction with IAL, the Communications Control Centre at the Police National Computer at Hendon that I took over as TTO B for operational management. Technically and in business terms very shrewd and a very pleasant man, approac...

Ron Barrell

Very sorry to belatedly hear of the death of Ron Barrell, although I had heard from other sources. I took over the UHF lab from him at CCE and he was a very hard act to follow. His lab was absolutely impeccable.

Hi everyone

My name is Alan Copperwaite and I was based in CCE Harrow between 1969 and 1973 in the VHF/UHF labs, Speed cameras and the late lamented Swansea DSBDC experiment before moving on to the Police National Computer Unit. I wonder if any old colleagues visit this site. I only came about it by accident th...
