"We record with regret the death of Mr. Thomas Goodier Travis, former sales manager of the Witton Engineering Works of G.E.C., who died in hospital at Sutton Coldfield on July 31 at the age of seventy-seven years. Mr. Travis joined G.E.C. in 1921 a branch engineer at Manchester, having previously spent some fifteen years with the British Westinghouse Company Ltd. In 1924 he was promoted to sales manager of the G.E.C. Engineering Works at Witton, Birmingham, and continued to serve in that capacity for thirty-five years until his retirement in September, 1959. His services to H. M. Government during World War II were recognised by the award of the O.B.E. Mr. Travis was, for many year, intimately concerned with B.E.A.M.A., and served on the Export Panel from its inception in 1947 until his retirement."
