1925 Obituary [1]

ERNEST CHARLES LAW was born at Birmingham on lot August 1890, and was educated in that city.

He served his apprenticeship from 1903 to 1908 with the Brooke Tool Manufacturing Company, Ltd., Birmingham, and on the termination of his indentures he spent some time in the machine shops of the Wolseley Tool and Motor Co., Ltd., and with the Austin Motor Co., Ltd., Birmingham.

When the War came he served in the R.A.O.C., and in February 1919 was wounded in action, from which he recovered sufficiently to take advantage of the Government schemes for disabled Service men.

Mr. Law spent a considerable portion of the years 1919-22 as a mechanical draughtsman in a Government training centre, and at the end of 1922 he again entered the works of the Austin Motor Co., Ltd.

111-health, however, again supervened, and he died on 11th May 1925 at Birmingham.

He became an Associate Member of this Institution in 1923.
