Hi Terry,

i thought about the men who teached us the 615 Tape drives (i remember the "egg crate" ....).

It is possible that his name was Paul Vincent or so??

Hello Heiko
Good to hear from you and your memories of those days at the ITEC on the
North Circular Road.  I remember the incident when I walked into your classroom and
started speaking about the Printer, it was to see how far I could get before someone among the students would
correct me and let me know that it was not the subject they expected. Happily it was not too long before
I was reminded that I was teaching the wrong material.
They were very happy days

Sadly Joe Fry died some years ago, As for Tom Baldwin, Dudley Lowe and Dave Lewis they are all now retired from working, I know Dudley lowe is still with us but have no idea of the status of the others
Soon after 1072 the ITEC was relocated to Dundee in Scotland which was a disaster and very unpopular

Hi Terry,

thanks for your reply!

I wrote about the young man who teached us the 615-100 processor. His forname was Tom. He drove a red Triumph TR sportscar - after work we used to travel with this nice car through the streets of London. Can you remember his last name?

I wrote about an elder experienced man from Scotland who teached us the 615-200 processor (not a member of the ITEC staff). Did you remember his name?

Is it possible that the teacher for the century magtapes was Paul Vincent (it was his first course)?

Best regards
Heiko

My name is Terry Mozley and I was a 315 and 615 Instructor at Borehamwood and Brent. I then managed the transfer of the training facility to Dundee and continued to manage the training operation in Dundee for a while before leaving NCR  to manage the Computer Technology department of the Control Data Institute in London.  I would love to make contact and chat with engineers who I might have trained in those early days. The 12 years I spent with NCR were certainly the challenging and the most enjoyable of my career in the computer industry (I am now retired)

Hello Terry
in the first row of 315-engineers from germany were to my knowledge Dieter Huke, GŁnther Seitz, GŁnter (?) Elzholtz and, I'm not quite shure, Klaus (?) Hintze, all trained in Hawthorn. The second row was made up of Walter Frank, Herwart Rose, Manfred Schmidtz   and Reinhold Schrader (thats me, at the age of 30) We, together with others, were the first class, trained 1962 in Borehamwood with Dr. Riedle as instructor. He was kept quite busy, to manage the school, organise all things nessesary to run such objekt, settling things for his family to move to London and teaching students. So there was a lot of self-studying time, until Dudly Lowe took over. After returning to germany I was on site at "Lufthansa Computer Center" in Harksheide together with Dieter Huke. After an update to 315-RMC in Dayton, I became a "flying engineer" called to different sites, either for troubleshooting, installation or just for filling holes, until in Aug.1969 I came back to London for a 615-100/200 course at ITEC North-Circular-Road together with Wolfgang Jahnke. From that time, I remember Gordon Catchpole. During that time, I gave privat lessons to 315 students Manfred Morlock, Hans-GŁnter Kieserling and another guy at my home in Finchley. Since I had some field-experiens, I think, they might have learned a little bit from that. My last course in the UK was 1977 on an M05 basic. Our instructor introduced himself with the words: "My name is John, and I like" - by that he pointed to a big logo placed on the front of his desk - "Glenfiddich!" He of course let us know, why he liked Glenfiddich, and since then, it is also my favorite brand.

Reading in the forum wakes up old times, with struggles and success, with travelling and meetings of other people, with joy and feeling bad, - just old times.

Best regards
Reinhold
