Anonymous Reminiscence

A visitor told me that he and a nearby lady neighbour had also worked at the Vickers site in the early 1950’s at a time when large numbers of the employees were contracted to  undertake work on soldering electrical connectors and making wiring and cable looms to be used in the pioneering LEO computer developed by J. Lyons and company. Having originally been conceived to help with catering and bakery production for J. Lyons, in later years variants of the LEO design were also contracted to the Ministry of Defence to assist with missile and war head trajectories.
