News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

This topic may be relevant to your enquiry. Post 6 refers to Colonel M J W Ellingworth
Goodluck with your Book  :)

Hello All,
I am wondering if anyone can help me with some information from a newsletter article from spring, 2007, and quote:
"Colonel M J W Ellingworth was associated with E K Cole, the owner of EKCO radio company and that some of the early intercept radios were produced or modified by his company."
Chatham played an important part in the initial interception of GAF Enigma traffic and played a key role in the early breaks by providing quality intercepts.

The reason I am asking is that I have written a book called "EKCO Sounds", and while it is in the editing stage, I'd like to find conclusive evidence such as to what extent EKCO were involved.

Thanking you,
