Dave Sturrock by Pete Simpkin

Very sad to hear of the sad death of Engineer, Dave Sturrock, and the tragic circumstances.
I knew Dave from our days at Evesham in the early sixties along with Jim Gregory, but had no contact since.
We were pioneering teams of new engineers at Evesham as the Beeb was developing at a fast rate it’s regional and sub-regional opt-out evening news services, so many of us were, although engineers, having to learn Tech ops as well. Subsequently, we were the first TA (i.e. Engineering rookies) to get to produce an end of course TV programme, and Dave and Jim would have been caught up in that too.
As tempus fugit looms, the loss of people such as Dave becomes more poignant.
