Bombe Rebuild voted top Engineering Heritage award winner

ever to have won an Engineering Heritage Award.
Termination of two MOSI Projects
It is with a heavy heart that we have to report that the authorities at the
Manchester Museum of Science and Industry have decided to terminate the
Hartree Differential Analyser Project and the Pegasus Peripherals Project
as they no loinger fit in with the museum's future plans.
We understand that the Computing Gallery will be closed.
A sad day for us all especially for Charles Lindsey, Brian Russell, Dave Wade
and the other team members.
