MALVERN RADAR AND TECHNOLOGY HISTORY SOCIETY
We celebrate the extraordinary history of government research in Malvern from 1942-2001
MALVERN FESTIVAL OF MILITARY HISTORY
Lord Ashdown, a keynote speaker, in front of the MRATHS stand.
MRATHS had a stand at the recent Malvern Festival of Military History, an event which celebrated a wide range of historical periods. We displayed some of the posters currently exhibited outside Waitrose and a small part of our archive of WW2 documents and equipment. The distinguished speakers entertained and enlightened the audience with a wide range of topics linked to currently published books ranging from Agincourt, Waterloo, Vietnam and the little known story of the German opposition to Hitler.
NEW POSTER EXHIBITION
MRATHS is pleased to present another 30 unseen stories to Malvern’s public. Their new exhibition in the Church Walk Gallery was opened at 09.30 by the Mayor, Cynthia Palmer on Saturday 11th August and features another interesting mix of surprising revelations.
- Find out how the US president is connected with Malvern’s wartime radar research.
- Learn why a bee has a radar aerial on its back.
- Discover why RAF radar plotters were working 24 hrs a day at Malvern in 1954.
- Learn how Bernard Lovell’s radar team helped with the war against enemy submarines in 1944.
- Chips with everything - Malvern scientists worked out how to make the silicon used in electronics on an industrial scale.
The exhibition will be in Church Walk (outside Waitrose) from 11th August until the end of October.
