    I met my wife there in 1957. We both worked there.

    I worked at Sterling Cables Aldermaston 1967-1969. Where’s the mention of the part they played in designing the cables for the moonshot and landing on the moon? We worked with people from NASA too.

    Love to know if the Boss, Pat was still about. I loved working at Stirling Cables on the reception when I left the Wrens. It was brilliant 😊
