HI iain,
have a look at the pics I posted of the students at Aberdeen Wireless College, you might recognise some of the guys.
Photos taken around 1959 to 1961 when it was on Union Street.
Let me know if you recognise anyone

Hi, macrae:

I'd be interested in looking at your photos - can you tell where they are situated on the site? Some of the lads at Stonehaven Radio - eg Ron Crighton - had been to the College.

Hello again:

I rubbed my two remaining brain cells together and found your photos. Sorry - don't recognise anyone EXCEPT possibly Joe Roberts (think you're right, Bill), who taught me morse and regs in 1966 and later at Aberdeen Tech College. I remember sitting in one of the morse rooms when SOS SOS SOS come over the Atalanta in the control console - sent by someone on the Salvor I in the Cabin where we learned hand-on maintenance. I never knew Joe could move so fast ....

I attended Aberdeen Wireless College Union Street in 1954 - 1956 and again at Albyn terrace 1959 - 1960. Unfortunately I cannot get my two brain cells to conjure up your photos - Help!!!

Smile Aberdeen Wirless College should read WIRELESS

Is it possible to change the heading please so that wireless is spelt correctly?

Hi Mimcoman,
saw you mentioned Ron Crighton ex GND, we joined OTC together in Sydney
and was at Rons Wedding to Helen in Sydney. He was posted to DarwinRadio/VID and I was sent to PortMoresbyRadio/VIG. Understand Helen couldn't stand all the flying beasties up at VID and they returned to Scotland where joined GKR and GND. Was sad to hear he passed away suddently a few years back
Regards Ern Barrett
