Phillip Welch   was one of a group who waged a continual war against the elements.

"Because of our location there was a never ending battle against the elements. Corrosion was a big problem and caused a lot more work. Phillip, who was attached to antenna maintenance, was a machinist by trade and turned out many repair parts in stainless steel.    "This of course, is a costly business but in the long run it is cheaper. Stainless will save money at the end of the day because it does not rust easily. "Believe it or not metal will actually crumble in out here in a given period. We were forever taking steps to prevent corrosion." Maintenance crews at Cooper's Island used special paints to protect steelwork.    (Source: RG 03/22/1969)
