FIRST THURSDAY – Bomber Command 100 Group: RCM in WW2

Until further notice, please contact us by email to confirm that our First Thursday meetings are going ahead.

Due to ongoing building works to renovate the Lounge area of the Novers Park Community Association, where we usually meet, we are unable to occupy our meeting space until further notice.

Consequently we have to review, each month, the possibility of our regular meeting taking place. We have maintained our Calendar in the hope that the works will soon be complete and we can return to normal activities but we can make no promises at this time, hence the request that before you travel to visit us you take a moment to get in touch by email or watch our TWITTER (sorry X) @G4WAW feed.

We apologise for this but the situation is outside of our control.

Greg 2W1BUF has been a historic researcher of 100 Group for a number of years. His knowledge makes him, without doubt, an expert on this part of bomber command during World War 2.

No. 100 (Bomber Support) Group was a special duties group within RAF Bomber Command. The group was formed on 11 November 1943 to consolidate the increasingly complex business of electronic warfare and countermeasures in one organisation. The group was responsible for the development, operational trial and use of electronic warfare and countermeasures equipment. It was based at RAF stations in East Anglia, chiefly Norfolk.

The group was a pioneer in countering the formidable force of radar-equipped Luftwaffe night fighters, using a range of electronic ‘homers’ fitted to de Havilland Mosquito fighters which detected night fighter radar and radio emissions and allowed the RAF fighters to home in onto the Axis aircraft and either shoot them down or disrupt their missions against the bomber streams

This evening Greg 2W1BUF will give a summary of the complex developments in his usual well informed style.

A note on etiquette:

This will be a hybrid meeting, which means that there will be people physically present and present via a video link. Can everyone please respect that this means we won’t know who is within earshot, therefore please behave accordingly; moderating language used to that deemed appropriate for polite mixed company that might include younger people and don’t shout over those who are not present in person. Remember to look to the screen in the room as well as the people physically in the room and avoid interrupting someone on screen.

These virtual meetings can work and provide a way for those unable to attend in person to continue to participate but only if everyone adapts to this new style of working.

The event is finished.
