    Hi Terry, thanks for posting the photos and welcome to the forum. The building in the second photos behind the fence is now the museum.

    Yes, that was the SLEWC building , It gave me shivers when I saw the pictures of the opps room for the first time since 1974.I had two teams of fitters. One did data handling and the other team displays.The Supervisor was the only one trained on the whole system.I was given the task of makeing the Tote Displays.scan0002 - Copy.jpg It was quite a responsibility to be in charge of such a complex and at that time cutting edge equipment.Here is the only pic I have of me in uniform taken at my bungalow in Coltishall village on the day I went in to be Demobbed. We all celebrated at The Ferry Inn at Horning.

    We were on a few days break up Caister way and drove past on a trip to Wroxham.
    Never realised just what was there!
    As our Land Rover Show in September is in doubt we are laning around Norfolk instead so I'm going to make a point of heading over for a look-see.
