The Magic Ear A Radar Story Fifth in the Suffolk Series
by Jenny Webb
Price: £5.99 Postage Band B
When Tom asks his Gran for a memory from World War 2, little does he imagine that his great-granny played a key role in one of Britain’s wartime secrets – working as a radar operator at Bawdsey Manor.
A box of Great-granny Jean’s memorabilia from WW2 is the starting point for an adventure into history where together, Tom and Gran learn all about radar, “the Magic Ear”, and how it affects our lives today. Along the way, Tom comes across Martello Towers and WW1 and 2 military structures embedded in the landscape which show that this remote corner of the Suffolk coast has always faced danger from across the sea.
