Incidentally, I just heard yesterday, out of the blue, from Jimmy Carol who remembers me from my first course. Disgracefully I do not recall him. This through a friend of a friend if a friend of one of my brothers. Coincidence is a very strange thing at times!!

Just checked my certificate and, to my surprise, my PMG 1 was issued in May 1965......

This photo is I believe of the Marconi induction course 'graduation' sometime in the 50's. It includes my brother Jack who got his ticket at Eglantine Avenue, so may well have other Eglantine Avenue people in it.

Hi,.. maybe not exactly what you're looking for, but I attended the MRC in Belfast,... in behind the City Hall... . Hardcastle Street I think:.... The Boss was Mr Rowlinson,.. Mr Graham, (ex Queen Elizabeth), Mr Tuff, and three others, were the Instructors. I sat the PMG and BOT Radar, as it was then...Any help?
