Daniel Prenn, an acquaintance of my late father, and much admired by him. A Jewish regugee from Russia or Poland, he set up home in Germany. He was a notable amateur tennis player playing in the German Davis Cup team from 1928. In 1933 he again escaped as a refugee, this time to England, where he founded the 'Truvox' company, supplying audio equipment. This is how my father met him. Prenn merged Truvox with Rola-Celestion in 1949, my father becoming his employee.

Some sources give Lithuania, Russia and Byelorussia as Prenn's birthplace but my information comes from the information given by him when entering the U.S.A. flying Pan Am. By 1950 he gave his nationality as British. He had addresses at Park Avenue, New York, Gerrards Cross, and Mount St. W.1.
