Lady CURRAN (née Joan STROTHERS) represents the important achievements of the TRE, the TELECOMMUNICATIONS RESEARCH ESTABLISHMENT (TRE), both before and after the move to MALVERN. Joan STROTHERS was one of many talented WOMEN contributing to the Allied war effort, with her helping develop AIRBORNE RADAR and the “WINDOW” [‘Chaff’] COUNTERMEASURES. She married the then Dr CURRAN in 1940, in Swansea, where she was born of English parents (he had a Scots father and Irish mother). Much of her wartime and post-war scientific work was done working together with her husband in UK and the USA. Later they supported the Scottish Polish Cultural Association, having both admired that special POLISH verve and contribution in WW2.
