Friend of Marconi Veterans


As we approach the end of the year, I am looking to the printing of the labels for the mailing of the annual Newsletter.

It seems, therefore, timely for me to ask you all to help me in two areas …..

First, do you know of a Veteran who would like to receive the Newsletter and possibly attend the reunion. It may be that they have moved or not replied to a confirmation request of a few years ago.

The second way you can help is if you know of someone who is not a Veteran but would like to receive the newsletter.  Some of these (those who left with 21 to 24 years service) have now become Veterans by virtue of the recent reductions in service requirement and I would be delighted to hear from them and make sure they are on the mailing list.  With regard to the others, we are pleased to announce that we are compiling a list of those who, whilst not entitled to become Veterans, nevertheless wish to maintain contact with the Association.

We are terming this “Friends of the Marconi Veterans’ Association”. All “Friends” would receive the newsletter and we would do all we can to keep them in touch with ex-colleagues but would not be eligible to attend the reunion.

In all cases, please urge them to contact me as soon as possible
