    My father, HM Jones, died late last year. He worked at Malvern from 1944 until the end of the war. I have various documents from that time which might be of interest to you. These include photographs of electrical equipment & large aerials which (I think) relate to this time to an original TRE Memo (56/M.10/MR) Copy No 7. To show the other side of the work there is a booklet for the play “Tobias and the Angel” which, according to the programme with it, ran from 16 – 18 Dec 1945 in the Assembly Hall T.R.E. My father was one of the Masters of Properties.
    Please let me know if the Society would like any of these.
