Welcome!
 
This one-page site has been created to advertise the existence of a number of websites relating to the Marconi Company.  In most cases these are currently private, others are public.
 
The Marconi websites fall into two categories; those which typically relate to specific interest groups and those which relate to documenting the history of this world famous company using in some cases collaborative Wiki-style software.
 
Interest Groups 
  • Marconi Veterans Association (MVA) - for those with 21+ years of service - click here to view
  • Marconi Heritage Group - working to establish a physical Heritage Centre in Chelmsford - click here to view
  • Marconi Old Geezers' Society (MOGS) - primarily for ex-Radar people but by no means exclusive to them - click here to request membership
  • Marconi Old Fellows (MOFS) - for whose who were Marconi apprentices - click here to request membership

To show age is no barrier this is a quotation from a member of the above groups:

Brains of older people are slow because they know so much. People do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information stored in their brains, scientists believe. Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive becomes more full, so humans also take longer to access information, it has been suggested.

Researchers say this slowing down is not the same as cognitive decline. The human brain works slower in old age, said Dr.Michael Ramscar, but only because we have stored more information over time. The brains of older people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know more, but just may not be able to access the information.

Also, older people often go to another room to get something and when they get there, they stand there wondering what they came for. It is NOT a memory problem; it is nature's way of making older people do more exercise.
