Another name I didn't recognize - I knew there was someone who did zone
refining, and that it was critical, but didn't know the name.

You likely already know of this, just not under this name; here:
Briefly, during WWII, the British ran the entire German espionage system in
the UK; initially, only for counter-intelligence purposes, but later on, to
actively feed the Germans disinformation.

For anyone who hasn't read it, I highly recommend R. V. Jones' book, "The
Wizard War" - it covers all the various navigation systems (on both sides),
and much more. I can also recommend "The Secret War", by Brian Johnson (the
companion book to a BBC series), which covers that, radar, the V-weapons,
code-breaking, and much more.
