Ex 12-13th entry Cosford (Enginer fitter).
Congratulations John on setting up this site.
Been trying for years to contact Gene Battersby (A/F 10th entry) - does anyone know of his whereabouts?

Re: Re: Engine Mech/Fitter

I too was an engine bod 1951 to 1956.We were instructed on Bristol Hercules,RR Merlins, RR Derwents and some on RR Avons but worked on Cheeta's, Gypsy's, Pratt & Whitneys DH Ghosts and Hercules . After all this time just the other day got into a discussion on the Hobson RAE Injector and anti -gravity devices as fitted to the Stromberg Carburretor. Google is a good source of info for these, artysand
