Static protection

I worked for some years in R&D for a company involved in static and lightning protection. The level of ignorance around industry at the time was enormous. People didn't see the need.

One of the organisations that was unimpressed by our sales pitch was BR, or whatever it was called at the time. When a year later a main line signal box was taken out by a lightning strike I'm afraid we all cheered.
