I am seeking all confirmed searchlight sites in Essex and Herts which were placed around the countryside in the Second World War.

I am attempting to record the exact positions of the many sites around the farms and lonely places.

Readers would have to be around 70 to recall those far off days, and it is quite difficult at this late stage to find people who were around at that time.

I wondered if those who do remember a site near them would kindly write to me with the exact position.

All information received will be acknowledged and a refund of postage will be made.

My efforts will be eventually handed over to the respective records office.

Thank you.
