Caption: Met Office communications. Met Office personnel in RAF (Royal Air Force) uniforms preparing tapes in Morse code for general broadcast. The Met Office is the UK's national weather monitoring and forecasting service. It was part of the Air Ministry between 1919 and 1990. A variety of communication methods have been used during its history, and weather reports and data were broadcast in Morse code for many years, even after spoken radio broadcasts began in 1922. The Met Office was located in Dunstable from 1940 during the Second World War.
