Sq Ldr Frank Hayward - Introduction to Reports
Sqn Ldr Frank Hayward moved to live in the area of Christchurch where the aerodrome TRE used in 1940-42 had been and also the Army Establishment ADEE/ADRDE. The first really successful Ground Control Interception (GCI) station was nearby at Sopley.

He has taken a great interest in what happened in all these localities during World War 2 and in the associated technical and operational matters. After a lot of study and research he has produced several unique and extremely interesting reports about the Establishments and the people involved. 

I helped in the preparation of some of these and he has kindly given me permission to use them as I see fit as shown in our exchange of letters. The reports are listed below.
