There’s a slim book called “Off to War with ‘054” (by John Kemp, Merlin Books, 1989) about No. 15054 AMES (cover name = Air Ministry Experimental Station) which followed the Allied armies across N Europe in 1944–45. One of its big engagements was when the Germans were trying to destroy the bridges at Eindhoven.

Re: British ground-based radars, 1942

Thank you all. I truly understand the secret aspect, and I can also understand the general lack of interest in this sort of thing, but after all this time it's nice to know at least part of the story has been written.
