After thinking back over this period, I have realised that the revolution in the design of structures has been nearly as great as the revolution in transport that took place in the previous half-century, which started with horses and ended with jet aircraft! E.W.H. Gifford

A Letter From Mozambique

A Letter From Mozambique

I recently arrived here in Mozambique to undertake a 2-year contract on a VS0 (Voluntary Service Overseas)-type basis. The broad philosophy of this work is that skilled foreign staff should be placed in Government structures of developing countries where they can work on a local salary alongside local people. It is hoped that they should not only complete a particular project but also pass on some of their experience to those they are working with. I have a placement with the parastatal construction company, CETA, a general civil engineering contractor in the provincial city of Beira. I have been seconded and sponsored by Gifford & Partners, for whom I worked in the UK for the past 6 years. C.M. Collings

A Letter from Kurdistan

A Letter from Kurdistan

The destitute images of thousands of men, women and children walking into the snow-covered mountains of the Iraq and Turkey border as they fled the advancing forces of the Iraqi republican Guard touched public opinion.
