Tales of an apprentice intruder alarm engineer
A series of short stories detailing the highs and lows of an apprentice in the late 1970’s
Philip Wilkinson. Born in Headingley, Leeds I am a Yorkshireman through and through. I was apprenticed to Chubb between 1976 and 1980 and had as a result, privileged access to customers premises as part of my role working alongside engineers installing and repairing intruder alarm systems. During my apprenticeship I witnessed many interesting situations.
This autobiography provides an insight into many rude, funny, annoying, and sometimes downright dangerous situations I encountered during my formative teenage years. It also provides an understanding of early high security intruder alarm systems, which were surprisingly crude by modern standards.
The tales of a famous Yorkshire vet published when I was eleven in 1970, televised in 1978 and the re-run in 2020 had a lifelong influence on me. Driving through Yorkshire to service and repair security systems in all weathers and at all times of the day, I felt an affinity with him and often visited remote locations all over Yorkshire, at all times and in all weathers.
I have often mused if it would be possible to write a similar fact-based story about my own unique experiences within the intruder alarm industry.
Tales of an apprentice intruder alarm engineer is the first book which covers the period 1976 to 1980 when I was apprenticed in the industry.
