The orginal work force

Postby ChrisB » Sat Aug 12, 2006 11:03 am

Had a lovely e-mail from a chap today who use to work on the lucas project in the 70's

Apparently the General Manager Geoff Harding who ran the project at Lucas died recently and a lot of the guys who where on the project met up at his funeral on Friday 11th Aug.

I have invited him over so with luck he will pop along, it will be great to hear from someone who was originally on the team at Lucas

I reject reality and substitute my own !!!!!!

Oh that would be great to speak with someone who was on the original group.

I did have contact with one chap, Prof Roger Kemp who is Head of Engineering Dept at Lancaster University. He was there in the 70's and I did get a chance to speak with him but he had forgotten a lot of the people he worked with in the design labs.

He sent me pics of the mark 2 and 3 controller but he had left by the time the Mk1V was in production for the Bedford and Sherpa.

Way ahead of their time..............
