A Celebration of Dr George Daniels CBE FBHI

George Daniels provided very generously in his will with the formation of the George Daniels Educational Trust in 2012. Among its objectives, the Trust supports clock and watchmaker training through the George Daniels Educational Trust Advisory Committee (GDETAC) that consists of members of the Clockmakers’ Company and the British Horological Institute. Through advice to the Trustees and recommendations on applications for awards, GDETAC seeks to promote and encourage horological training in the UK.
