Fellow BT worker here too John, I remember lacing cables and the fabulous Clove Hitch knot to finish off.
Cable lacing was a work of art if done properly :-)


Likewise.

The famous 'Plate Wiring' An essential part of one of the courses. (B course?)

The black waxed cotton was great for repairing my tubular bicycle tyres as well.

Oh, dear. Another hi-jacked thread.

Sorry!

:oops:



I've done time at Yarnfield too. Got out across the fields after being snowed-in for two weeks of a six weeks course. M6 was blocked by lorries with frozen diesel.
