The names are:

James (Jim) Whelchel USN Lead Engineer Patuxent River. He once berated us at a Progress meeting telling us what faults we had failed to resolve. Only when we queried his detail did he realise he had picked up his logbook (spiral bound) upside down and given us our competitors development issues by mistake!
