Page 18 states that Watson-Watt designed a communication net with buried phone lines.
NOT TRUE. Watson-Watt was one of the team of scientists under the direction of Sir Henry Tizard. It was Air Chief Marshal (spelt with one L) Sir Hugh Dowding, the first Commander-in-Chief of the new RAF Fighter Command in 1936 who devised & built up the Home Defence system combining the early low frequency RDF (radar) Home Chain, Royal Observer Corps, AA guns, barrage balloons, early warning sirens etc. as well as his commanders directing minute-to-minute directions to his minimal fighter squadrons. This unique & revolutionary structure known as the Dowding System (still used today around the world) was based at his HQ, RAF Bentley Priory, Stanmore to the north of London.
To get the correct facts read the new biography: DOWDING & CHURCHILL by Dr Vincent Orange.
