At this time this Wiki is just a repository of information as and when it is received.  As time progresses this will be expanded and restyled to match the other Marconi Wikis.





This Wiki will attempt to trace and document the instruments business developed by Marconi Instruments (MI) from its inception in 1936 to the present time.  Although references may be made to other companies associated by merger, their businesses will not be included in this Wiki.
