We are saddened to record the death of Frank Grantham, a mechanical designer par excellence, who was one of the original partners in GME. He was responsible for the detail design of the basic structures of a series of bridges that continue to be shipped around the world, from Canada to Tasmania. Frank had served a craft apprenticeship in the UK, and we knew each other first as colleagues at a Canadian company building naval aircraft handling equipment. Following his retirement he helped set up Gnome Miniature Engineering, combining professions and hobbies. Always a fine designer, a meticulous model maker, a good friend and a most congenial colleague, he will be missed.
