Chain Home Radar and

RAF Drone Hill



The Site

The Model

Some years ago a proposal was put to the APSS committee to build a scale model of a locally significant, World War II radar site. This site was at Drone Hill, north of Coldingham in Berwickshire where, in 1938, a Chain Home Radar Station was constructed. This fitted well with the aims of the Radar Group.

A team was brought together and the project started. The result is a 1:500 scale model of the radar station as it would have looked in 1940/41. This is now on display in the National Museum of Flight's Radio an Radar exhibition.
