Dave:

Now I know why I didn't recognise the "Sr. Anne's" school name. We emigrated to the US in July '68 and had lived in the Midlands for over three years prior. There were a lot of emigrations in the years 1966-1970 due to all the issues with the aircraft industry. Cancellation of the TSR-2 was the hit that got us moving around. We didn't emigrate immediately because it looked like my mother had developed cancer but she hadn't.

I did two years in the machine tools industry in Coventry then 15 months with Norton-Villiers motorcycles in Wolverhampton. Both of those companies went bust after I joined (coincidence, I hope). Many friends from British Aircraft Corp had already emigrated and we decided to join those that were at Boeing.

We've lived in Washington State for all but three of the years in the US, during which time I worked at NASA-Langley in Virginia. I completed almost 28 years at Boeing, 3 years before the lay-off then almost 25 after returning. I retired at 58 and we moved to Anacortes a year later. I'm just coming up to my 20th year of retirement.
