This is he - Headquarters Royal Observer Corps first came to RAF Bentley Priory in July 1936, along with Air Chief Marshal Sir Hugh Dowding, who had been appointed AOC-in-C of the newly formed Fighter Command and of which the Observer Corps was to play an integral part.

 I served as a volunteer in the Royal Observer Corps for 34 years until it was stood down in 1992/93
