Roy Dommett (1933-), rocket scientist and aeronautical engineer, worked at the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough throughout his career. He was involved with most of the major British missile and rocket projects including Blue Streak, Polaris, Trident and Chevaline. Much of this work remains classified. During the 1980s he played an important role in UK/US technical liaison during the StrategicDefense Initiative. In his spare time Dommett became an internationally recognised expert on Morris dancing, authoring a number of books and lecturing on its history and practice. This interest has continued during his retirement.
