Thank you for your message of 22nd January.

I am a chartered engineer (retired) having graduated in mechanical engineering from University College, Swansea in 1954. I have spemt most of my working life with the chemical company ICI. I was married in 1955 to Nan Day.
We live at 37 Oakdale, Harrogate, North Yorkshire HG1 2LW, and have 3 children. Simon Robert Knapper who lives in Croydon, Ceri Jane Walker who lives in Switzerland and Ian Dennis Knapper who also lives in Harrogate. Ian is married to Sarah and has 2 boys Jack aged 6 and Sam aged 3.
