Remembering old colleagues

I worked for Allen West at Moulescoomb from 1949 to 1952 when I went off to Australia as an electrician with the then Australian National Airways.

The first photograph here is a group of work colleagues. Sorry but I cannot remember all the names:

From left to right:- Brian Cox; Tony Questier; ? ;Reg Boswell; Childs; Jack Knight (Sitting); ?

The second photograph was a crowd of us on an outing and taken at Runneymede. My wife and I are at the far right, unfortunately I cannot remember the other names now.

Maybe you recognise yourself or someone else? If you do, please leave a comment below.

  • I remember the chaps in the top photo as I worked in 102 assembly with them in 1950 prior to doing National Service, and again two years later for another eight years. Jack Knight was a close friend of mine. I think Jim Remington is also in the photo rear right. John Starley. Email:

  • This picture is before my time, but the chap in the centre front, next to the lady with the handbag, is Max Aldridge, who I knew in the drawing office.
