Several years ago I was researching the development of military radio in Australia. I wondered if the Radiophysics Laboratory, RPL, part of the CSIRO, might have been involved. Instead I discovered a large archive of the Australian development of radar during WW2. These files, around twelve 4 drawer filing cabinets, were stored away and long forgotten. They were still classified Top Secret and I had to get permission from the Chief of RPL to view them. A while later the Australian War Memorial, AWM, put Mr. Ed Simmons in touch with me. Ed was a WW2 RAAF ground radar technician and was researching radar from the RAAF view. Ed and his co-authors, Morrie Fenton and Norm Smith went on to publish a number of books on RAAF ground radar and in doing so revived the RAAF radar association, bringing together many of the old personnel who had lost touch, and discovering history that would have been lost forever. Their books also served as models for similar publications in other countries. I was pleased to provide technical information and help Ed and his crew. (I was "adopted" by the Radar Association, which caused some amusement at luncheons when little old ladies, ex-servicewomen or spouses of servicemen and now in their 70's, couldn't help asking if I'd lied big time about my age when I joined the services.) I wrote a brief history of RAAF ground radar for Electronics Australia in 1993 and a number of radar related articles for other magazines. As a result of all this activity I accumulated a large data base of radar related publications and it is listed below. It's not complete and probably never will be.

There has been an enormous amount written about the development of radar, some excellent and some of it a load of rubbish, and there is steady trickle of new publications, some of which falls into the latter category. For further extensive references I recommend “A Radar History of World War II” by Louis Brown, published 1999.

 Because I was researching radar in Australia there are Australian radar reports that are not necessarily available elsewhere.
