Hi folks, It’s nice to be able to keep in touch with my retired workmates. Just a little about me: I trained as a craft apprentice Via Winfrith and based at RCC Amersham then transferred to AERE Harwell for Drawing office training followed by appointment as design draughtsman in Research Reactors. I spent around 20 years providing experimental in-pile rigs for the UK Fuels program. Following the shutdown of the reactors I spent some years looking Harwell’s Main Site facilities under care and maintenance and being involved in decommissioning activities. You might say after playing with my toys for a while I spent the last few years helping to put them safely away. I manage, as far as is possible, to keep in touch with my ex work mates. Sadly a few have passed away in recent years. Hopefully by joining this site I will continue to do so. All the best john

Hi John, a much delayed response. I imagine my grandfather was a few years before you but you could have crossed paths. He worked in the Research Reactors Division as head of design at B521… I think. Do let me know if you crossed paths!
