Memories of the Bureau of Meteorology 1929-1946: History of Major Meteorological Installations in Australia From 1945-1981: Four Years in the RAAF Meteorological Service: The Bureau of Meteorology in Papua and New Guinea in the 1950s
This volume in the series of Metarch Papers contains reminiscences of Allan Cornish, Reg Stout, Keith Swan and Col Glendinning spanning the operation of the Bureau of Meteorology and the RAAF Meteorological Service from 1929 to 1981. Their reminiscences provide an interesting survey of meteorological developments over that period and because the authors worked in different places on different tasks their stories provide a range of impressions of the operation of the Bureau during that period.
The forewords which precede each of the individual reminiscences show the range of family backgrounds of the authors and reflect the changes which took place in the national scene, notably the effects of war in the Pacific from 1941 to 1945.
One aspect which is highlighted by all of the reminiscences was the great personal satisfaction the authors had in becoming part of the large family of employees in the Bureau of Meteorology and the RAAF Meteorological Service.
