Arthur William Stapleton

I had no idea in what esteem my father was held within the electronics industry, until a book full of published obituaries was sent to me. One contained the words, “I doubt if it is a happier ship than when Stapleton was at the helm.” These words remain with me. My parents were of grandparent age so I knew little of his pioneering in this capacity. He was the founder of Advance Electronics, and started his business in a poultry shed in 1922 after surviving service in the First World War.

Reading his words about his time fighting for king and country was like seeing a blood filled horror film play out in my mind. Every now and then as I read his words I became choked with emotion. It was not a story about a soldier facing death on a daily basis… it was about my dad. I learned more about him after his death than when he was alive. I would like you to know him as well.

– These words are written by Marion, the author's adopted daughter, from within the family.
