Clement Frederick Davis (c1871-1954) of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway

1954 Obituary [1]

WE note with regret the death of Mr. Clement Frederick Davis, A.M.I.C.E., which occurred at the age of eighty-three, on July 6th, at Milland House, Bar End, Winchester.

Mr. Davis was educated at Dulwich College and Trinity College, Cambridge, and gained much of his early engineering experience with Messrs. Kennedy and Donkin. His particular interest at that time was in various public utility works and in the development of electric traction in this country.

At a later stage of his career, Mr. Davis worked for a time on engine development at the Royal Aircraft Factory (as it was then called) at Farnborough.

In 1914, he joined the electrical engineering staff of the old London and North-Western Railway and when it was merged in the London, Midland and Scottish Railway Company he became assistant chief engineer (electrical).

Mr. Davis retired from that position in 1934.
