I went to Brunel in 77 and did the MNTB Electronics Cert course and some C&G certs thanks to CP Ships. They endeavoured to send most of their ROs on the MNTB course. The Brunel course was excellent thanks to some very good instructors such whose name slip my mind now except for Alan Melia and Mr Needham.

Certainly helped my career hugely! Did the MNTB Electronics Cert at Brunel during 1973. I enjoyed the course very much, very hard work though! Can't now recall many of the personnel there but Alans and Peter Prance's names do come to mind. Remember building a SWR meter as a project there.

gand00k1n,

I also did the MNTB course at Brunel in 1977. We may have been in the same class. There were several of us there from Blue Flue.

Alan,

Many thanks for reminding me of your names. I certainly learned a lot on that course. Rather a long time ago now, so I have forgotten the imaginary numbers!

Best regards,
Richard

Richard, if they were imaginary, then you needn't remember them! they were just a figment of your imagination! Fortunately the beer down at the Ashley Hotel (ship aground bar) wasn't imaginary.

Best wishes
Alan
