Hello Stephen
Understand the sports thing. Imagine landing in Australia in the 50s as a 10 pound pom with no hand-eye coordination and unable to swim. Anyway, survived all that. We all know about the tech-entrepreneurs of the 80s and 90s, but your Dad was making what looked like a handsome living being an independent supplier of high-tech gizmos to conservative behemoths such as ICI in the 50s. He must have been doing it even earlier. I would be very interested to know how he got into this activity much earlier it seems than most others, and how he maintained such an apparently successful enterprise. Cheers, Ian
