Amd thank you, Carlos.  I am not certain just what you mean by "DCA", but
the British DID organize various radar chains by 1938.  Still, the vast
improvement in radar, turning it from a theory into practice, occurred
during the War, especially with the development of centimetric radar by the
British in 1941.
