1925 Obituary [1]

"THE death is announced as having taken place on Monday, March 23rd, of Mr T. J. Reynolds who for many years had been in charge of the installation of all turbo-generator plant manufactured by the British Thomson-Houston Company.

Mr. Reynolds, who was the second son of the late Major T. W. Reynolds, R.A.S C. was born at Aldershot on December 8th, 1876. He was trained in the steam and mechanical engineering departments of Combe, Barbour and Combe, Belfast, and after many years in the merchant service - P. and O. Steam Navigation Company and Ocean Steamship Company, Liverpool (Alfred Holt and Co.) - he joined the BTH Company's construction staff, being placed in charge of his department in 1913.

For the past twenty-two years Mr. Reynolds had been closely identified with the turbines of that company, and he was recognised as having unique experience and skill in their installation and maintenance. His death will he greatly regretted, not only by the company to which he had been a faithful servant for so long, but also by very many central station and other engineers throughout the country, amongst whom he was widely known and very highly respected.
