It is important to register to build a database that can then be searched to find old colleagues which is the primary function of the site. Registration is not intrusive and is completely Free. When you visit the site and don't register, please tell me why!

Remembering our Colleagues

Remembering our Colleagues has been a feature of CAWPA News for many years. Now a list of deceased colleagues has been compiled from a number of old copies of CAWPA News.  I hope it will be of use to any C&W Pensioner who may be seeking information about an old colleague. The detail has been scanned from CAWPA News editions and errors can creep in during the process and I have proof read several times to minimise errors. I apologise for any errors that may remain, which I will gladly correct. You will need to Login to access the list. Please tell me if you have found this list useful or even just interesting.

Cable & Wireless Communication shares up 21% on Liberty takeover talks
22 October 2015
From -  Business

Cable & Wireless Communication shares soared 21% after it confirmed it was in takeover talks with Virgin Media owner Liberty Global.

Liberty Global, which also has a 10% stake in UK TV company ITV, has not formally announced its offer and has until 19 November to decide if it will.

The deal would allow Liberty Global to expand its reach in the Caribbean where it lacks a mobile phone presence.

Cable & Wireless said the deal could be a combination of cash and shares.

Liberty Global, which is owned by billionaire John Malone, has a strong foothold in Latin America and growing presence in the Caribbean.

Last month Liberty abandoned talks with Vodafone about a swap of business assets in Europe's mobile phone, broadband and TV markets.

In November 2014, Cable & Wireless paid $1.85bn (£1.2bn) for Columbus International, a fibre-based telecommunications firm that Mr Malone owned a stake in.
The deal gave the Liberty Global owner a 13% voting stake in Cable & Wireless.

Liberty Global operates in Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2013 it bought Virgin Media expanding its presence in the UK.
