Harold Taylor RIP

It is with great sadness that I report the death of Harold Taylor, founder partner of electrical contractors Darke & Taylor. Harold’s family want a quiet send off so I just want to recognise his passing as a wonderful man and a true inspiration.

To give a small insight into Harold’s character we need to step back in time to Great Britain in the 1940’s. Harold was doing his apprenticeship and had been told to get a pair of pipe-grips. So on his day off he gets on a bus to Newbury to get a set of the aforementioned. Half-way during the journey the bus was strafed by a passing Messerschmitt and luckily nobody was injured. Showing typical British upper lip all the passengers quietly file off and continue to walk on to Newbury. Harold bought his pipe-grips and quietly returned home.

Later on during the war years Harold was in the navy and his ship successfully brought to the surface and captured a German submarine, along with one of the first Enigma machines to be brought back to Bletchley Park.

Harold was a kind and gentle man, I was and still am very grateful to have known him, he really was one of the “giants that walk amongst us”.

Rest in peace Harold.

Yeah! athletes around the world wrongly use money to enhance their performance. Sir Bradley Wiggins & Lance Armstrong are the more recent examples. Authorities have acted against it by investing in technology, providing replays on big screens. To say that ethics only exist at the amateur level is an Understatement.

Moving on with the time is the best thing that you are ever doing for living this life in the way you want too. On the other side disorganized workshop is the one thing that I also don’t like to have in front.
