William Cooper

According to Eric Rock, in a telephone conversation with Graham George Hawker on 14 August 2000, William had sons. He also worked with the RAF at a listening station and when demobbed continued to run it as a civilian. He later worked on similar projects in Hong Kong and Cornwall. Hopefully I will get more information from Eric and from Gladys Cooper his cousin.
