Ian Goult lived in Felixstowe before the war, and applied for a job at the Bawdsey Research Station where his sister worked as a secretary.  He joined the radar team as a laboratory assistant in Bob Dippy's team after the research had moved to Purbeck.  He was later transferred to Dummer's team who were responsible for designing and maintaining equipment to train radar operators.  His book 'Secret Location' (see below) gives a first hand account of his experiences in Swanage and Malvern going on to his subsequent career in aircraft navigation systems.
