From Hugh Cowan
Sorry to hear about Colin. Colin was the "go to" but for all things avionic. His knowledge of connectors and wiring tools was legendary. I still have the wire stripers which I bought from him 50 years ago - and they still work! A gentleman to work with and a pleasure to chat to.

From Iain Davey
I was sorry to read of Colin's passing. He worked in Materials Control all the time I knew him, but had been an electrician before, if my memory is correct. He was always most helpful and very easy to get on with.
