Centronic Ltd started life as 20th Century Electronics Ltd. in 1945 making atomic radiation detectors. Gilbert Tomes became a single owner when the limited company was set up.
He had developed his own detector from the standard Geiger Muller tube. The company still supplies detectors for atomic piles etc and developed the BF3 neutron detector.
The cameras for use in high levels of radiation are still based on vacuum tubes but new types are coming along.
Costs £20. This meeting has been organised by George Freeman. This is a high security company because of its work and radioactive testing. No cameras please.
