No doubt, he was a regular contributor.

With Sir Bernard we will not have to build a monument to his memory, he built his own, in the Cheshire country side in 1957.

Manchester University's Lovell Telescope, the world's third-largest steerable satellite dish (it was the largest when it was built in 1957) - which I went to see as a kid in 1991 - is named after him.
