Station description

Located at Pightley House, Spaxton. The wireless was hidden in the outside toilet and adjoining potting shed of the house.  

Ingram's son, 2nd Lieutenant Thomas Ingram, knew nothing of his father's involvement with Special Duties until he returned to Pightley House towards the end of the war to find men removing the wireless set from the outbuilding. He recalled he was surprised that he had never noticed the aerial attached outside before then.
