The annual joint meeting of the LRS and the Museum of Communication at the museum in Burntisland was held on 25th September 2019. 

The use of RADAR technology in the conservation of the historic Union Chain Bridge, built in 1820 near Berwick on Tweed, was described by Prof. Emeritus Roland Paxton MBE of the Heriot-Watt University (R) and Dr. Colin Stove, Chairman and Scientific Director of Adrok Ltd (L).  This was a great blending of history and cutting-edge engineering technology.

Examples of an original link and pin from the bridge.
