After National Service in the Royal Air Force Harry Woolridge applied for a job in the Service Department at the Triumph Engineering Company, and was lucky enough to be selected.

After a few years in the Service Department, Harry joined the team in the Experimental Department until he was promoted to the position of Assistant Quality Control Manager.
