The Thornham Magna Instation appears to have only consisted of an above ground Met Hut. This was in the grounds of Lord Henniker's estate. This is an interesting choice as Lord Henniker was himself seconded to SOE later in the war, though was serving with the Rifle Brigade in the Western Desert at the time the Instation was constructed.
Yolande Bromley was one of the ATS here, in a staff varying between three and five. She recalled that one of the outstation operators was a District Nurse, though she never met her. On one occaison she recalled an exercise where King George VI was said to be listening on the other end in a special demonstration for him.
Though another station was apparently opened at Bury St Edmunds in 1942, Thornham Magna contuned to operate, with Beatrice Temple visiting the three operators on 3 Mar 1944.
