Hi old mother goose, I worked at MEM from 1979 and left in 1986 - I took a 5 year apprenticeship there and then moved over to the Kings Road factory before leaving to join Wandsworth Electrical where I am now MD. I worked in every shopfloor and office department during my apprenticeship - that's how they did it back then! I could mention some names, but some famous links were the sister of Nigel Mansell who worked in the wages department at Reddings Lane and the mother of Ray and Earl Falconer (UB40) - Evelyn, worked on the shopfloor at Kings Road. Someone mentioned earlier that her great grandfather founded JH Tucker who MEM bought out in the 60's - my company was also founded by some ex JH Tucker employee's as was Crabtree Electrical - small world!! Still a lot of ex MEM apprentices still in the industry, would love to hear from some of them and anyone who knew anyone who worked for Wandsworth Electrical pre 1950's.
