Jayne remembers her father Roy Hodges

Dear Anne,  My father, Roy Hodges was also a scientist at TRE (later RRE) and came to Malvern in May 1942 along with the thousand other scientists from Worth Matravers.

Sadly he died in 2009.

I volunteer at the RAF Defford Museum, part of the National Trust property Croome Court.

My father’s flying jacket is on display in the museum, along with some other very interesting information about the airfield where radar was tested on planes.  I wonder if you know of it?

I attach a photo of Radar scientists at RRE taken on 26th June 1961, my father is in the front row, sitting cross legged on the right.  Please let me know if you’d like to chat.  Jayne
