CHARLES ALBERT BLASCHECK was born in London on the 19th April, 1874, and died at Canterbury on the 26th November, 1929.

In 1892, after two years as a pupil in the mechanical workshops of Messrs. Klein, Nuremberg, he entered the Frankfort works of Messrs. Schuckert and Co., leaving the following year to take up a course of training in electrical engineering at the Royal Technical College of Hanover.

He left the College in 1895, and returned to England as an assistant with Messrs. Nicholson and Tyler.

In 1896 he was engaged as an improver by the St. James and Pall Mall Electric Light Co., and from 1897 to 1899 he was assistant engineer in charge of a regular shift with the same company.
