1950's? So its not the Gadget, Bikini or Enewetak where they were tested then. Castle Bravo?
It was tested at Maralinga in Australia in 1956. The first was delivered to stockpile in 53 and they were retired in 62. They were stored at Barnham in Suffolk and Faldingworh in Lincolnshire, both of which were closed after Blue Danube was retired.
