Some may not believe my involvement in this project but I was an employee of Aircraft Research Development Unit between 1972 - 1976.
Why wouldn’t they? Did you happen to bump into an English Army officer seconded to the OZ army by the name of Brigadeer General McKay?
A balistics expert with a background in experimental weapons systems.
Interesting and very eccentric bloke.
Groupthink will destroy us all.

No!
I was just a shit-kicker tradie who was there to simply make modification for the Defence Scientists and do the strict testing regime?.

Even if you didn’t know at the time you’d have been subject to a thorough security check even for that job.

Certainly, I had to go thru all the rigmarole, being a member of ARDU - a special research and development Unit in the RAAF.

HM, then you probably ran across Brigadeer General McKay but didn’t know that’s who he was. He was in the habit of appearing in civies at research sites and keeping his rank to himself.
