Byfield, Area 15A

Special Duties Personnel
Role Name Posted from until
Area Officer Royal Signals Lieutenant John Hunter Monck-Mason Unknown 03 Dec 1944

This area is know from some notes taken by John Monck-Mason. He recorded the details of some of the stations and serial numbers of the batteries they were using. Unfortunately not all the locations were recorded. It seems that the network was vclosed down prior to June 1944 as it does not appear on the Jones Map.

It seems very likely that the Shorwell Outstation in this Network is the same one in the Omagh Network. Possibly the same is true for Newport Outstation and perhps the others were simply incorporated into the existing Networks or closed down.

This Network was supported by The Royal Signals of Area 15A.
