Institute of Physics Lecture Series

at the

University of Hertfordshire

'Mathematicians at War'

will be presented by 

June Barrow-Green

British mathematicians responded to the First World War in several ways.  Some volunteered their mathematical skills for work at the Royal Aircraft Factory where they could experience the risky practice of flying, while others went to the National Physical Laboratory where, safely on the ground, they did experiments using wind tunnels.  Another group joined the Anti-Aircraft Experimental Section of the Ministry of Munitions where they worked on ballistics.  There were also those who followed a military path, and those who, for reasons of conscience, refused to take an active part in the War

Alistair Hodgson, Curator at the De Havilland Aircraft Museum, will talk briefly about the early history of Salisbury Hall, its wartime role as the secret location where de Havilland designed the DH98 Mosquito (the so-called “Wooden Wonder”), and at how the Hall became the UK’s first aviation museum in the late 1950’s. He will finish up with a look at the Museum today in terms of some of its exhibits and the conservation work done there.
