Memories from the Sixties

Thomas D. Allan | SACLANT ASW Research Centre, La Spezia, Italy

First Paragraph

Many of the disparate band of scientists and engineers who gathered in La Spezia to set up the new NATO SACLANT Anti-Submarine Warfare Centre (SACLANTCEN) had been recruited from their own national defense establishments. At that time, I was the only Brit to join straight from university where I had just completed my dissertation on marine geophysics. This was my first real job.
