|Chris Curry says "He worked for an electrical maintenance firm for many years and moved to Leicester where he married a Swedish girl and became a very respectable family man who at one time took up God seriously, Later he moved to Scandinavia and the last time I saw him he was back in England in Norfolk. We attended together the funeral of a mutual friend Sammy Singh four years ago and he gave me his phone number but though it appears to ring, No message or call has ever elicited an answer. We suspect he is no longer with us as he had had several heart operations by then."|

|Started Number One Systems Ltd. Now runs Eastern Yachts. He says |
"I enjoyed working for Sinclair from 1972 (I remember being the 48th or 49th employee!) through to 1978. I worked for around a year on a one-chip six-digit calculator design. Clive got cold feet on it and others started to come out with 8 digits! I then transferred to the mini TV program. Bit of a bugger really as I left Texas Instruments to get away from TV work!"
|Russ says: "I was Sinclair's first Marketing manager, brought on board for the launch of the pocket calculator in 1972. I did this for about 12 months, then became general manager of the HiFi division, until I left towards the end of 1974 to go to Malawi to be the MD of the "Nzeru Radio Company". After a couple of years out there I recruited Richard Howes around 1977 to join me on the technical side. I left there in 1978 and took a variety of CEO positions in companies such as GEC, both in the UK and Zimbabwe, until I set up on my own in the late 80's as a design consultant. I still run my own company, Sheldon Reed Inspectors, specialising in energy conservation consultancy."
Russ also has a hobby site In Venue Recording.
