Defence Teleprinter Network (DTN) Information
Don writes: I am a volunteer researcher at the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach Virginia. The museum has relocated the watch tower from Goxhill in North Lincolnshire to Virginia. We are trying to identify any TTY or RTTY equipment that might have been installed, how it was used etc. so that we can replicate the setup when the tower is reconstructed. The RAF outfitted Goxhill to serve as a Bomber Command field but then turned it over to the 8th Air in May 1942. All I have found so far is that the TTY equipment in use was most likely British as US TTY equipment was not in Europe until later in the war.
Thank you, Don Hague US Navy Retired firstname.lastname@example.org
