NO apology is needed, we opine, to even the most died‐in‐the‐wool aeronautical enthusiast of our readers for reproducing here the paper read in January before the NORTH‐EAST COAST INSTITUTION OF ENGINEERS AND SHIPBUILDERS of Newcastle‐upon‐Tyne by MR LUBBOCK, although it by no means primarily relates to power‐plant for aircraft. Even SIR FRANK WHITTLE, on a recent occasion, tool: time off from his many aviation engagements to board a gas‐turbine‐powered naval gunboat and grace with his presence a short demonstration cruise it made in the Thames before tying up alongside the Nelson Pier at the South Bank Exhibition; where it lies, as we write, beside a similarly engined naval picket‐boat and the first jet‐propelled flying‐boat, the Saunders‐Roe SR/A1.
