David J Bailey

David Bailey was born in 1942 in the village of Adbaston in Staffordshire and moved the short distance to Knighton in 1949. He attended Eccleshall Secondary Modern School and left in 1957, aged 15. He secured an apprenticeship in Stafford and thus embarked on an engineering career, which was to last for 31 years.
