Caption: Met Office long-range forecasters. This is the Special Long-Range Forecast Unit that worked as part of the Met Office during the Second World War (1939-1945). This unit was established in 1942, at the Met Office's site in Dunstable, UK. During the war, the Met Office was codenamed ETA, and in 1944 it made contributions to the conferences and planning that took place at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force headquarters when it was located in Bushy Park, Teddington, London, UK. This included the plans for the D-Day landings in Normandy, France (see image C011/4715).
