Another excellent contibution to this site about the local engineering company CVA/K&T. Having passed through the company as an apprentice and craftsman, I have nothing but praise for the grounding in engineering and life Gil, his fellow instructors and the skilled tradesmen of the company gave me. I am lucky enough to still work in an engineering environment, I still use those skills of milling, turning and fitting that were first instilled in my apprenticeship at Kearney and Trecker.

Well what a surprise, there I am middle picture third from left! Training was really full. I went on to Parker Pen and now working in Eastbourne. This brings back memories.

I also did an apprenticeship with Kearney and Trecker CVA but as it ended engineering was suffering the worst ever shrinkage. Hundreds made redundant. I went off out into the world of alarms - pay trebled overnight, got married, bought a house. Stayed with alarms for decades, was well paid, good terms & conditions and a new car every two years. It was good to work in but finally night call out made me quit.
