  • My father and grandfather worked at Rotol. I have originals of both of the above photos in original mattes. They are marked on the back: “18669A” and “18669D”.

    We always thought they were photos of my grandfather who was an aircraft engineer at Rotol and then a plant manager (around 1942 or 1944?).
