Jeremy (Jerry) Light Armature (armchair) Shop I was an apprentice at
the BREL training school circa 1978 and subsequently employed as an electrician shop, the container shop and finale on the carriage gang with Alan Wiseman as chargehand. I left in 86 but still keep in contact with a few of the ex apprentice's. I firmly believe that the BREL training was second to none and the knowledge
imparted to me by some of the "old timers" is something a modern
training scheme could never equal. The loss of the tradesmen and women at Eastleigh was a huge loss to British industry and I dont think it can ever be replaced.
