STAFFORD RADAR SITE (US)
I have heard vague comments of the existence of a radar station at Stafford in Brisbane during WWII. The only indication that I have so far found is mention of a Stafford Radar site in the National Archives of Australia web site.
I know that there was a Direction Finding Station operated by the 126th Signal Radio Intelligence Company. Perhaps their Direction Finding antenna was misidentified by locals as a Radar set rather than a D/F antenna. The following entry in the Brisbane Military Telephone Directory for May 1944 confirms the existence of a D/F Station in Brisbane operated by the 126th SRIC:-
Major Brown, H.W. 126 R.I. Co.
Can anyone help with some information on the Stafford Radar site?
