Barking College of Technology

I was at the Barking College of Technology MRO course 1966 – 1969, when I completed the PMG 2nd Class and then 1st Class (I got my radar ticket on leave the following year).  The senior lecturer was a Dutchman called Hank Boendermaker, a first rate CW man and great on the technical stuff too.  One of the lecturers was an Irishman called Jim Callaghan, who later joined the ROA and died only a few months ago.Subsequent cohorts to mine had lady students, including a brother-and-sister act.  The college became part of North London Polytechnic and is now, I believe, part of the East London University.
