Binmore

Chief Mechanician

 

Mentioned in Harold Siddall's memoirs.

The Chief Mechanician in charge of the evaps (evaporation plants for making distilled water from sea water) when I was learning about the intricacies of distillation was Chiefy Binmore and his son joined us as a Second Class Stoker. The Chief asked me to show the lad around the Department and generally offer some help when needed. This I did, helping him to find his feet until he made friends and found an ‘oppo’ for himself.
