The reservations that Professor Heyman expresses regarding the relationship of loads assumed in simple plastic design to real states of loading have some justification, particularly in view of the dubious nature of stochastic calculations in relation to extreme loading conditions. I find it, however, more difficult to follow his arguments in relation to deflexions and stability calculations. Professor M.R. Horne
For nearly thirty years, including seven years of war-time, I had no contact with the Institution headquarters except by post and through reading-or trying to read-the journal. In early days I knew only one name: Major Maitland, and I wondered but never understood what went on at 'headquarters'. How did 'they' decide whether or not I was to achieve my ambition to become a fully-fledged structural engineer? One realized that Major Maitland did not do all the work himself and that even given a President, elected yearly, the two of them must have a large body of assistance, both from the members themselves and from some sort of secretariat, to handle all the business-not fully understood by me of a major professional institution.

The history of the Fort Regent from its origins to the present day are first described followed by the requirements of the States of Jersey and the evolution of the design now under construction. The engineering problems encountered and the derivation of design loadings together with the solutions to these problems and the design logic employed are discussed. The various structural elements that form the complete roof structure, such as the curved roof beams, fascia girders, portal frames, and the north and south ends and the dome, are fully described together with the design procedure for the structural elements and the methods of shop and site fabrication.
