Historic Marconi artefacts

Do you have a Marconi artefact of historical interest which you no longer want to keep, or do you know of someone who does?  Marconi Veterans’ Association committee members would encourage anyone wishing to dispose of such an item to donate it to the Chelmsford Industrial Museum at Sandford Mill.  There are a number of veterans who collect items to do just that.  In the first instance you should contact the editor, or any member of the MVA committee to discuss further.  We can arrange to collect the item from you, or liaise with the museum curator, Dr Geoff Bowles, for any alternative arrangement.

You’re a genius if you fly a kite in a thunderstorm and discover that lightning is electricity – but you’re an idiot if you fly a kite during a thunderstorm and discover that lightning can kill you.
