During the past two years, several papers have described different engineering aspects ofghe war effort in which the constructional steelwork industry has been concerned. The paper by Major W.J. Hodge, R.E., in January, 1946, on the Mulberry Harbour, and the paper by Lt.-Col. S. K-Stewart, R.E.in Nbvember, 1946, on Military Bridging, described two of the outstanding engineering successes of the war. Both these papers were of special interest to the welding enthusiast because they described work which was mainly welded, and could not have been built except by welding. For the design and operation of the equipment described in these two papers, the honour belongs to the Services and the Service Departments, but for the construction of the equipment much
credit is due to the constructional steelwork industry.
