Presidential Address By Lt.-Colonel G. W. Kirkland, M.B.E. (Mil.), M.I.Struct.E., M.I.C.E. Given before the Institution of Structural Engineers at 11, Upper Belgrave Street, London, S.W. 1 on the 6th October, 1960

GENTLEMEN, Thc Presidency of our great Institution, to which office you have elected me, has, in the past, been held by many distinguished engineers who, being dedicated men, have all assisted in increasing the stature of our body corporate. To say that I feel honoured in being allowed to join these august ranks would be a gross understatement, and yet those very sensations of honour and pleasure make me feel very humble.
