1933 Obituary [1]

CAPTAIN FRANK MENZIES GREEN was representative of Messrs. Fraser and Chalmers of Erith at the Manchester branch of the General Electric Company from 1924 until his death, which occurred on 20th October 1933.

He was born at Honor Oak in 1892, and received his technical education at the Finsbury City and Guilds Technical College.

He served an apprenticeship with the Thames Ironworks, Greenwich, from 1910 until the closing of the works in 1912, when he joined Messrs. Gwynnes of Hammersmith, for whom he was engaged as draughtsman on pumping engines.

In August 1914, he enlisted with the Honourable Artillery Company and was shortly afterwards given a commission in the Royal Warwick Regiment. He was transferred to the Royal Flying Corps in 1916 and was later made Flight Commander.

He joined Messrs. Fraser and Chalmers in 1919, and after working for a short period as erector on turbo-alternators, he was transferred to the sales department as sales engineer. Mr. Green was then appointed to the turbine contracts department and was responsible for many large municipal contracts, and in 1924 he took up his appointment in Manchester.

Mr. Green was elected a Graduate of the Institution in 1912 and in 1921 was awarded a prize for a paper on steam turbines read before the Graduates' Section, London. He was transferred to Associate Membership later in that year.
