Comment: During my military service with the RAF from 1952-54 I served in 90 Group as part of the GRCU (Ground Radar Calibration Unit). Our task was to check the accuracy of all the CH stations from Sennen Cove in Cornwall along the south coast and then up the east coast to the Orkneys. The system used was to track a plane flying a fixed course then plot any divergency. Once this was establised the aerial arrays were adjusted accordingly. Seems like only yesterday!
