bring on the old'uns

I often read books that I've read before, after 10 years or so there seems to be stuff I must have forgotten.
One that springs to mind is 'Not Much of an Engineer' by Stanley Hooker.[surprise surprise]. It's the biography of the guy who brought the gas turbine to fruition. Much of it happened in Lancashire, [Clitheroe and Barnoldswick]. Brilliantly written by a great engineer. Rolls Royce would'nt be the world leader in aircraft engines without his work.
