The gas explosion at Takeley telephone substation
July 31st, 2014
Memo to Mr Riley, Area Engineer, Post Office Telephones, dated 4th February 1963
R C Layton, AMIEE, Chartered Electrical Engineer
(Mr Riley forwarded this memo to the Chief Regional Engineer, saying “The attached memorandum was produced in an attempt to answer questions raised by the explosion at Takeley U13.
Since it is possible the memo may have a wider appeal, copies are forwarded herewith.”)
In fact the memo was very widely circulated particularly within the Gas Board.
