Keith grew up and was schooled at various places around Yorkshire prior to training as a Post office Engineer just prior to the start of World War 2. During the early part of the war he was employed laying cables and providing communications on the airfields being developed around Lincoln. Upon being called up initially to serve in The Green Howards, his Post Office training led him to be selected for service in The Royal Corps of Signals. His initial training as a Lineman saw him posted to Catterick but his prior trade knowledge saw him move onto the training staff. He spent the remainder of the war years training tradesmen until he was discharged as a Cpl in 1945. He married his wife Jean who had also served in Catterick working for NAAFI.In 1950 he joined the TA to serve in 49 Signal Regiment in Leeds. He worked his way through the ranks leaving as a Major with the Territorial Decoration in 1967. He lived his retired years in Barwick in Elmet a village outside Leeds until his admission to a nursing home and his passing on at the age of 97 in 2019.
