(Dave Taskis) xfer A&AEE Boscombe Down and RAE Farnborough. It did tropical trials in Lybia (pre-Gadhaffi), icing trials back at Westland and spent some time up the French Alps for altitude trials - vague on dates but I think all that lot was before 1962/3. I think they tried arming it at some point after that (RAE again).
