Following my retirement from the NHS two weeks ago after 31years service, I have just stumbled across the Baker Perkins historical site. I was employed as a Pattern and Model Maker at Baker Perkins from 1969-1980 . I have fond memories of producing a large number of full size and scale models of a wide range of machinery for the Industrial Design Team.

I originally made my first scale model for the company when I was asked to produce a scale model of the complete Westwood Works site with the proposed new office block that was eventually built.

It is a shame that the political and world financial circumstances enabled the peicemeal dismantling of such a fine engineering business so that it is a shadow of it's former self.

I have a large number of photographs of many of the models that I produced including the new office block project that I would be happy to share copies for use by this website.

To let former colleagues know that Ron Ladley ( Printing Outdoor Engineer ) passed away on the 25th May 2016. Suddenly but peacefully at the age of 93.

I've just 'tripped over' the Rifle and Pistol Section page - the photos are before my time, but it was still good to see so many faces I recognised! - Brought back great memories
