Hey the 1967 apprentice picture has yours truly in it. 3rd row, 6th from left. On my left is Gareth Davies, who joined Cutler Hammer in S Wales as my replacement and is now the Cardiff  branch manager for the UK Rockwell exclusive  distributor, Routeco. In from of me and to my right is Steve Jones, left the switch to join The Sound Centre music equipment shop in Tredegar.
The guy immediately  in front me whose name is on the tip of my tongue. His dad ran a Car filter plant in Gilwern or Abergavenny. I recognise Jeff Jones , 3rd row, 2nd from left. He' went to work with Peter Gay and became a specialist on protective systems. Then worked on the oil rigs in the North Sea. Now runs a company in Risca retro fitting old Oil Circuit Breakers with Vacuum Interrupters. The guy 9th from the left in the front row is Ken "Pepper" something. Lost track of him a long time ago
