  • Thank you Martin for the update and detailed information… date now corrected

  • Bristol Aerojet project.
    c.1983 not 1970, this facility was built later for the production assembly and test of Chevaline components.
    The TV/CRT is showing a contamination slide sample taken from an individual Chevaline component.
    This slide looks a bit too contaminated for production acceptance of the component.
