    I did my apprenticeship at Goetz’s from 1969 -1974. I worked at Goetz’s manufacturing annex next to the main building in Hall street and also in the ESR Toolroom.

    GOETZ gave me a fantastic grounding in Engineering which lead me to becoming an Executive Manager Engineering at the Department of Defence.

    I’ve retired from the Department in 2016.

      Thanks for your comment David. There is a brief post about the annexe under the category “War Years – Goetz Annexe”. Please feel free to comment any info about the annexe you think may be relevant. Neal
