The Friends of SRDE who are ex-SRDE employees are collaborating with the Red House Museum and Gardens at Christchurch, Dorset, to create a Local History Project to commemorate the work on Military Communications carried out by SRDE over the period from 1948 -1980 before it was moved to join forces with RRE at Malvern in 1980.
The Friends of SRDE can be contacted either by writing to Mrs C.M. Deacon, 3 Newbridge Drive Cottages, Milford Rd, Everton, Lymington Hants SO4 OJF, or by contacting Carole Deacon on Lymington (01590 678986) or Stan Davies on Bournemouth (01202 398056).
There are two reunions during the year where ex-staff can catch up on the latest news, one in October at the Function room at the British Aerospace Sports and Social Club, Grange Rd. Somerford (formerly the site for the main SRDE establishment) and the other a dinner at a hotel in Bournemouth early in the year.
If you are a former employee of SRDE, please visit the Feedback page and fill out the questionnaire to help us catalogue the work carried out at the establishment between 1948 to 1980.
