...from BBC News
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/1324771.stm



"...Research into Australian archive documents at Scotland's Dundee University indicated that 24 Australian servicemen tested different types of clothing to find out what protection they offered against radiation.

"...Professor Roff told Australian ABC radio that the documents showed the British Government had lied over whether servicemen had been used deliberately for human experiments.

"...Servicemen were made to walk through ground zero

"...She said the servicemen were asked to wear particular types of clothing as they walked and crawled in the area hours and days after the detonation at Maralinga.

This starts out slow, but gets to really poppin' in the 1950s.

And it ratchets way up when the first moratorium ends in the early 1960s:
