The speaker at the meeting of Kendal Rotary on 13th August was Trevor Monkman, one of our own members, who gave his ‘Job Talk’ telling us about his working life prior to retirement.

Starting work in 1950 and following his National Service in the RAF servicing Vulcan bombers and Canberra aircraft, he went to work as an electrical engineer in a number of companies including GEC, North Eastern Electric Board and British Steel eventually ending in charge of high voltage equipment, up to 66,000kv, at the Redcar iron works.
