Sir Paul Gottlieb Julius Gueterbock (c1887-1954), managing director of Capper Pass and Son

1954 Obituary [1]

We regret to record the death of Colonel Sir Paul Gueterbock, K.C.B., D.S.O., which occurred on March 8th, at Abbots Leigh, near Bristol. Sir Paul, who was sixty-seven, was a past-president of the Institute of Metals and managing director of Capper Pass and Son, Ltd., of Bristol.

Paul Gottlieb Julius Gueterbock was educated at Rugby and Trinity College, Cambridge, and entered the non-ferrous metals industry in 1908. In the years prior to the first world war he was concerned principally with researches into the alloys of lead and tin.

Sir Paul served with the Gloucestershire Regiment throughout the first world war, being mentioned in dispatches and gaining the M.C. and the D.S.O. He commanded the 4th Gloucesters from 1924 to 1929 when he was promoted to the rank of Colonel on the Territorial Army General List. In 1947, Sir Paul was appointed an additional A.D.C. to the late King George Vl, which appointment was renewed after the Accession of Her Majesty The Queen in 1952.

Following his war service, Sir Paul resumed his work in the non-ferrous industry, and for some time he was head of the research department of Capper Pass and Son, Ltd. Subsequently, he became managing director of the firm, in which office he continued up till the time of his death.

In addition to his active participation in the work of the Institute of Metals, Sir Paul was a member of the council of the Institution of Mining and Metallurgy, and a past-chairman of the British Non-Ferrous Smelters' Association. He was created K .C.B. in 1949.
