There is a memorial window in the chapel to the men and women, scientists and RAF personnel, who worked on the development of Radar. A Halifax bomber was undertaking trials when it caught fire and crashed nearby killing all on board.

I have watched the entire Foley's War series. Remember the episodes with Andrew at the radar research center.
