Welcome to this the first Newsletter from The Marconi Veterans Association. We intend to issue this annually to bring you news of people and events which take place during the year. Hopefully this will prove useful, especially the dates of various functions. We cordially invite you to send your own snippets to an one of the Veterans Committee or the Veterans Secretary at BAE SYSTEMS, Research Centre, West Hanningfield Road, Gt. Baddow, Chelmsford, for inclusion in the next edition.
