Trivia:

Stage-struck as a boy, he nevertheless signed on for a four-year apprenticeship with Waygood-Otis in order to please his parents. He helped install the lifts at BBC Broadcasting House, and also maintained those of Jessie Matthews and of the future royal family. The latter led to an interesting talking-point at a royal broadcast of the radio show in which he made his name. See more »
