Letter: Scattered relics of British electronic achievements

Sir: T C H Going (letter, 11 March) regrets the UK's failure to present our achievements in the field of telecoms and electronics with a national museum. He may gain some consolation from the news that the Royal Corps of Signals is expanding and renovating the Museum of Army Communications at Blandford in Dorset through the generosity of serving and retired officers and soldiers of the corps, the defence electronics industry and the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The history of military signalling tells much of our nation's telecoms history, since many of the advances in the technology of communications and cryptography have been driven by our defence needs.
