...sorry. :)

Looks like a radar room to me. I just about remember visiting Southampton's radar room in 1985, looked a bit like that.

Bloody close with Ulster Radar, but not me, I was behind the camera.

It was the Bishops Court Ops Room, 1984 and the chappie is a scopie from West Drayton.

I forget the name of the displays except for the initials 'DBU' and they were connected to the T84.
