General Notes: From the "Cross and Cockade" Journal, a society for WW1 aviation enthusiasts, written by Rex Harrison:


Born on 23 April 1885 in Ipswich, the only son of Brightwen Binyon, an architect and painter 1852-1905, and a distant relative of the poet Laurence Binyon, he was educated at Bootham School, York, and Leighton Park School, Reading, both of which where Quaker schools. He then went to Trinity college, Cambridge in 1904, where he rowed as an undergraduate in the college boat, and graduated BA in 1907 having obtained second honours in Part One of the Natural Sciences Tripos. He began work with the Cambridge Scientific Instrument Company, and in 1909 joined Marconi for work on trans-Atlantic morse transmissions at Poldhu, Cornwall. From his RAF service documents held in the PRO at Kew, we learn that from 1910 to 1911 he was employed as a research engineer with Cie General Radiole Telegraphique in Paris, and from 1911 until September 1914as General Manager of the Anglo-French Wireless Company of London and Paris. Basil Binyon joined the RNVR as a Lieutenant on 22 Sept 1914,on the books of HMS Pembroke, additional for RNAS, where his wireless telegraphy expertise was employed for the war effort at Eastchurch. At that station he was working with Lieutenant D.R. Hyde-Thompson RN, who had been responsible for the first torpedo-dropping experiments, on Southampton Water, and Flight Sub Lieutenant M.B. Tomlinson RN
The War in the Air, by H.A. Jones, Vol. 2 mentions that Lt B.Binyon RNVA, a Naval Air Service Wireless Officer at Eastchurch had, in October 1914, designed a wireless set that was first made by the Sterling Telephone Company, and that two sets were taken out to the Dardanelles by HMS Ark Royal. (These sets were in fact not used to their full potential due to the spotters having insufficient experience in wireless telegraphy.)
On 12 March 1915, Basil Binyon became Flight Lieutenant (temporary) at Eastchurch for Wireless/Telegraphy duties and, turning once again to H.A, Jones, we find that he was the first aeroplane observer to test gun spotting by use of wireless. An old battleship, the Revenge, was ordered to Shoeburyness in April 1915 for firing trials in co-operation with aircraft from Eastchurch, and seaplanes from the Empress, and the Isle of Grain. On the first and second days the Eastchurch aeroplane carrying Binyon had the only success, which was all the more noteworthy as he had had no previous experience of gun spotting. For the first time in Naval history a battleship commander had had his fire controlled by communication with an air observer with remarkable accuracy, when neither were visible to each other. These events created great interest at the Admiralty, and both Winston Churchill, then First Lord of the Admiralty, and Admiral Lord 'Jackie' Fisher, then First Sea Lord, were said to be favourably impressed. Further wireless experiments were carried out in August 1915 at Eastchurch when Binyon was piloted by FI/Sub/Lt J.B.D. Boyd in BE2c tractor biplane No 1124. During 1915 Eastchurch was involved with at least three enemy air raids on England's East Coast which no doubt were a welcome diversion to the day to day routine. In February 1916 he went over to France with Lt Tomlinson to see how the French were progressing in wireless telegraphy, and reported back with much valuable information. Due to the rapidly growing needs of the RNAS, the Eastchurch wireless experimental station moved to Cranwell in May 1916, and Basil Binyon moved with it in charge of the wireless telegraphy school, which was situated in the Eastern half of the air station. His first service Confidential report is dated 18 January 1916, at Eastchurch, and states: "Has no experience of command or disciplinary duties. Expert in W/T in all its branches, and VGI as lecturer on W/T. Very good spotter". The RNAS training station at Cranwell in Lincolnshire was named HMS Daedalus after the usual Royal Navy system of giving the names of the ships to its shore bases (to be strictly correct it was borne on the books of HMS Daedalus). It was one of a number of flat areas of ground which the Admiralty acquired during the Great War for the use of aircraft for reconnaissance purposes. Admiralty memorandum No 14 of 24 February 1916 stated that 'all officers and men under instruction in aeroplanes, kite balloons and airships will be sent to Cranwell for a finishing course, and for graduation'. His first confidential report from the Commodore at Cranwell reads: "In charge of all W/T, W/T boys and electrical ratings under instruction, also experimental and research work. Has carried out duties most satisfactorily, is a good organiser, very capable and hard working", dated 6 November 1916. On 13 November 1916 it was put forward that he be granted the acting rank of Flight Commander, which he became on 14 November 1916. A further report .)f 26 November 1916 reads: "Very strongly recommended for promotion", and he was subsequently made Flight Commander with effect from 31 December 1916, with seniority from the same date. Apparently not content with his ground duties, Basil Binyon trained as a pilot, and was awarded Royal Aero Certificate No 4587 on 14 April 1917, at Cranwell, having taken his test on a Maurice Farman biplane, presumably a Shorthorn, as this was the usual training aircraft at that time. His service record dated 26 March 1918, shows that lie had flown 33 hours, of which 23 hours and 22 minutes were solo flying. The confidential report of 29 November 1917 by LtCol A. Warrington-Morris states "Recommended for promotion", and the same gentleman recommended him for the award of the OBE, which was gazetted on 7 June 1918 to Major Basil Binyon, Royal Air Force. Although there is no citation in the London Gazette, tlie award was for his war work on radio telegraphy from aircraft. Prior to the award he had been promoted in the New Year's Honour list of 3 January 1918 to Acting Squadron Commander, a rank which he held until the amalgamation of the RNAS and RFC on I April 1918. In the special qualifications section of his RAF service record, under authority, Census/365, are the notes: BA degree Cambridge, Natural Science Tripos. Post Graduate course in Electrical Engineering, seven months in engineering workshops, AMIEE, MIRE. Since joining RNAS three and a half years, officer in charge of all W/T research and experimental work. Graduated as a pilot (for aeroplanes). He remained at Cranwell with the Wireless Experimental Establishment, until being transferred to the unemployment list 21 March 1919. He returned to Cambridge University to complete his MA, and then formed-the Radio Communication Company in Barnes, making long wave marine transmitting and receiving equipment of international repute: was bought out by Marconi, and joined the board of that company. By Strange Coincidence, the Present GEC-Marconi site at Stanmore is known as 'The Grove', after the mansion which formerly stood there, and the architect of that building was Brightwen Binyon, Basil's father.
Following a meeting of wireless manufacturers called by the Postmaster General in 1922, it was decided that a single company would best serve the new medium of radio broadcasting, and the British Broadcasting Company was thus formed. Earlier that year the Marconi company had already begun experimental transmissions from Writtle, and prior to the formation of the new company there had been many difficult meetings between the Post Office and private companies on how broadcasting should be organised. Agreement was reached at the meeting at Savoy Place on 18 October 1922, the result being the birth of2LO.
Basil Binyon was appointed an original director of the British Broadcasting Company, serving until 1926 when he resigned after a disagreement with Lord Reith, the managing director, regarding the changeover from private enterprise company into a public corporation, now known worldwide as the BBC. He returned t Marconi until 1935, being periodically released for visits to the Argentine to supervise the Buenos Aires Water Company. He was chairman of the Institute of Electrical Engineers in 1925. During WW2 he was Group Commandant of No 19 Group Royal Observer Corps, and from 1939 to 1947 was an Observer Commander. He died on 4 April 1977, aged 91, at Farnborough, Kent, after a full and active life, having been a pioneer of radio broadcasting, whose contribution to this medium should not be forgotten.

From the Kentish Times, Friday December 28, 1962:
Hawthorndene, former home of Major Basil Binyon, in Warren Road, Hayes, was severely damaged by fire on Friday. Firemen from Bromley and West Wickham spent nearly three hours extinguishing the blaze and damping down the fabric. Extensive damage was caused to the upper floor and the roof of the house, which contains 20 rooms and has been empty for some time. The site is to be redeveloped. It is believed the fire may have been started by children playing inside the house
