The successful development of atomic energy in the UK after 1945 soon left Britain in a pioneering position globally, with a scientific base that rivalled, and in some instances surpassed, contemporary capabilities even in the United States. This paper will assess how this prestigious achievement was handled by the British government and scientists alike with regard to building relationships abroad, notably in Europe and the Commonwealth, and what this can tell us about British national identity in a scientific sense.
