John found that not everything that goes up has to come down.

And not everything that should stay down, does so.

The proof was clear for all to see, including for an unsuspecting landlady. That gaping hole in the ceiling and thru the roof was something the Luftwaffe had failed to do previously during the war.

Father - Robert Henry Searl


Employed as electrical apprentice at BR Rewinds at Grays In Road, London. Tasks included stripping, rewinding and repairing all components of electric motors.

This is where John was to experiment with his ideas and prove, by accident, that conventional science is not always correct. This is where the principles behind the Searl Effect and the SEG were born.

Employed as Chemist Assistant at Cannings Pharmacy, St. Peter's Street, Islington, London. - The preparation of doctors prescriptions for customers.


Employed as Trainee Nurse

Upon the recommendation of the Chemist John was employed as a trainee nurse at Shenley Hospital, on the wards. Within a month was promoted into the laboratory to study Histology and Bacteriology. Within 2 months John had won a 6 year grant to study in Neurosurgery at Cambridge at age 16 but this fell through due to John's guardian's refusal to assign the hospital as John's guardian for the six year period. From this point on, with an aspiring medical career shattered, John became interested in cinema projection, from a technical viewpoint. John soon had a job as the trainee projectionist at Woodford Bridge and then at Ilford. Fortunately the manager was a ham operator and John was introduced to this field. This career move was also interrupted by an envious Guardian and so John moved to the Midlands to set up on his own.

Worked at a tap manufacturer during the day, and as the projectionist at the local cinema in the evening.

Full time projectionist at the Tower cinema, West Bromwich.
