Any information on my uncle, Herbert Jack Morris?

Richard asks:- “Trying to find any information on my uncle, Herbert Jack Morris who was part of Mark Oliphant’s team working on radar, located at Birmingham University.

In 1940 Jack build the first cavity magnetron for John Randall and Henry Boot.

During WWII he was one Oliphant’s assistants sent Berkley, USA to work on Radar and the Manhattan Project.

After WWII he joined the Atomic Energy Research Establishment as head of Glass, Plastic and Ceramics.

It would be interesting to hear from anyone who worked with him.
