Sir Charles Oatley
Charles Oatley was a member of John Cockroft's team working on Army Radar. He initially concentrated on devising and providing test equipment to operate at the novel very high frequencies involved. This work was of major assistance to all working in this new field. Later he was Cockroft's deputy and took over the leadership of the Army Radar Establishment in Malvern when Cockroft left to lead the newly formed Atomic Development Team.

I was fortunate to persuade him to write his memories of those days at the advanced age of 91. He unfortunately died before he wrote about the differences between the management of the scientific teams in the Army and Air Force Research Establishments.

As shown by his Obituary he achieved high eminence in the academic field.
