I was a Student Apprentice in Midlands Region from 1965 to 1971 being based mainly at Rugeley 'A', but also spent time at Rugeley 'B', (Construction and Tech Devel groups), Ratcliffe (Construction group), and Works training at English Electric Stafford. I was Electrical and Mechanical but spent most of my training in the Efficiency, Planning and Tech Devel Depts.

I also recall at Rugeley 'A' a Mech Eng apprentice Glenn Tucker who started the year before me. I think also at Rugeley as apprentices were Dave Collins, Mick Darby, I was appointed as a Tech Devel Eng at Rugeley 'B' from 1971 to 1972 when I left C.E.G.B. and joined ESKON in South Africa.
