AERE News Memories

For those of us that worked on site, you will recall the weekly Atomic Energy Research Establishment newsletter (AERE News). In the pre-internet age, this newsletter was the only way of communicating effectively around the site.

Thanks to Colin Banks and his bright idea of getting in touch with Iron Mountain Nuclear Records to see if they had any back issues of the AERE News, we have been fortunate enough to secure copies of all Rugby Club reports that appeared in the AERE News in the founding year of the club, 1947.

We are indebted to Mark Constance of Iron Mountain Nuclear Records for his efforts to retrieve and provide copies of the original documents.

In reproducing these extracts we acknowledge that, as the source of the material, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) retain their Copyright and grant permission to reproduce their Copyright material in this instance only and on the condition that:

  • It is re-used, recreated or quoted accurately, and not in a misleading context,
  • It is not re-used for the purpose of advertising or promoting a particular product or service,
  • It is not presented as though it were current.
If anyone is interested in seeing the rest of the page that the rugby club report appeared on, the full pages are available from Andy.
