Biography

I was awarded a Fellowship in 1969 whilst employed by the Port of London Authority (PLA) to study the design and construction of harbour service vessels (for example, tugs, dredgers, salvage vessels and floating cranes). I spent four weeks touring shipyards and design offices in Holland and two weeks in Germany studying related marine engineering systems. I eventually left the PLA and secured a position at a marine engineering consultancy in Glasgow. My Fellowship certainly contributed to securing that position and the experience and knowledge gained during the Fellowship were beneficial to both myself and my employer. I retired from that company as a senior consultant after 21 years' service. I remember the whole experience of the Fellowship and its consequences with pleasure and gratitude.
