Station description

The only information currently available comes from a 1944 map of the Special Duties network. This shows an outstation in the vicinity of Bradwell-on-Sea. It is likely that the set was in or around the village itself as the land is extremely flat and the village is the highest point in the surrounding area. Even today the area is relatively sparsely populated, hence the location of Bradwell nuclear power station nearby.

In other parts of the country, doctors and the clergy were picked as wireless operators and with the church tower of St Thomas's being the highest structure in the area, it may be that the Reverend Peregrine Neave Maitland was involved
