Abstract

This response to Mike Bullock and Laurence A. Lyons’ recent debate article on British wireless communication in the First World War makes use of new and under-utilised British, Australian, Canadian and American archival sources in order to counter their claim that the British high command failed to modernise its communications system when it could have. In so doing, it reveals how the inherent flaws in their argument and methodology oversimplifies the nature of the communication difficulties experienced by the armies of the era and, in particular, distorts our understanding of the complexities of the British army’s communications system.
