The Royal Observer Corps (ROC) was first introduced in 1925 following the famous ‘Zeppellin Raids’ of the First World War and to help to identify incoming enemy aircraft. Originally the Corp was known as ‘The Observer Corp’ but was granted the Royal title after their services during the Second World War.

In the 1950′s the threat of nuclear attack from Soviet Russia rapidly increased with the escalation of the Cold War and the super weapons races. This necessitated the monitoring of a nuclear burst and the subsequent fall-out in order to provide warning and support to the civilian population. This responsibility fell to the ROC and 1563 underground monitoring posts were constructed around the British Isles.
