Welcome to Episode 11 of Cold War Conversations.
Today we’re covering a British Cold War civil defence unit called the Royal Observer Corps.
We’re talking to Alistair McCann who has preserved a Royal Observer Corps monitoring post as a museum in Northern Ireland.
We talk about the museum, the difficulties of the Northern Ireland Royal Observer Corps during “The Troubles” and what the reality would have been for these men and women should the Cold War have turned hot.
I hope you find our conversation as interesting as I did. We welcome Alistair McCann.
