The Society is working with Ian Brown, an Assistant Curator of Aviation at the National Museum of Flight, on the first published history of ground radar in Scotland during WWII.

We depend on publication grants for our books, usually provided by other organisations, but as an independent researcher the author does not have access to funding streams. We are now accepting donations of any size which would help to pay for professional copy-editing, typesetting, printing and open access of the publication.

For more information and to make a donation to the project, please contact the Managing Editor via email at
