…and now, the 2010 reunion

Plans are well advanced for our 2010 reunion, which takes place on Saturday 17th April at the MASC in Beehive Lane, Chelmsford, commencing at 1.00pm.  Doors open at 12 noon.  We will celebrate 100 years since Marconi’s wireless telegraphy equipment proved instrumental in the arrest of the murderer Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen at sea on board the transatlantic liner SS Montrose.  Our reunion will revolve around this momentous achievement.  I am pleased that Ron Bradbrook, formerly Engineering Manager, Broadcast Transmitters, MCSL, will be our president and he will be introduced by Raymond Rowe, formerly Assistant Technical Director, MCSL, who has been one of our past presidents and is as equally well known as Ron in the transmitter industryThe guest speaker, following the theme of criminal capture, is ex-Chief Superintendent George Harris of Essex Police who was involved in police investigations for some of the more notorious Essex murder cases.  I feel sure we are in for a very enjoyable afternoon of nostalgia and experiences.
