Witness Appeal: Did you work with David Wrenn?

David Wrenn sadly died from the asbestos related condition, mesothelioma in May 2023.

David worked for Plessey Radar Ltd between 1965 and 1967 within the electronics department.

Following this, David worked for the construction company Pritchard Rhodes Ltd based in Twickenham between 1975 and 1977. The company completed construction and engineering work within the oil industry and gas sector in the Middle East and Algeria. David worked as a project planner within the planning team which oversaw these projects.

From 1978 until 1989, David completed work for Procon (GB) Ltd, McDermott Engineering Ltd and Brown and Root (U.K.) Ltd as a project planner within the oil industry.
