Marconi 'The Man'
1897 The Wireless Telegraph and Signal Company Ltd.
The World's First Wireless Telegraph Company

1997 marked the centenary of the world's first wireless telegraph company, established by Guglielmo Marconi on 20th July 1897.
To celebrate the centenary of the company that is now GEC-Marconi, we published a message from Princess Elettra Marconi - Giovanelli, Guglielmo's daughter.
To appreciate fully the impact of this event on today's technology, in particular radio, radar and television, we must first understand the remarkable achievements of the man himself and the events leading up to the formation of the world's first wireless telegraph company.
