Hi -- I think this post of yours got deleted and not restored in the back-and-forth earlier. Up to you if you want to try to fix it and reinsert it where it should have been. This evening I'll try to go through and make sure nothing else is missing. I plan to go through this article and bring it up to modern MoS standards; should have done that a while ago.

- Thanks for pointing that out Mike Christie – I'm sure a few bits popped in and out during that storm in a teacup, and I wasn't in a hurry to revisit it. I just had a quick look through and added my comment back: I'm not sure anything else is missing now, but would be grateful if you would indeed have a look. I'm pleased to hear you plan to go through the article too, let me know if at any point you would like me to have a look at that as well. Cheers. Nortonius (talk) 17:30, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

J. W. Reed obituary
While I couldn't see any more of Engineering via Google Books than you, I found a mention in something called The Engineer which may be helpful. (I say "may" as I haven't had a chance to read it myself due to connection problems - it's ~15 MB.) BlackcurrantTea (talk) 02:10, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
- That looks much the same as the text that I'd asked for, BlackcurrantTea, it was probably networked from one source to the other or from somewhere else entirely – found and read, thanks so much! Nortonius (talk) 11:22, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
Precious three years!
- It's touchingly kind of you to keep this up, Gerda, thank you! Nortonius (talk) 11:24, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
Searching Grace's Guide
I find their site search frustrating, too. The easy way is to tell your favorite search engine what you're looking for. On Google the syntax is
- site:gracesguide.co.uk "battle of the boilers".
That still showed only 16 July, so the 23 July link came from http://www.gracesguide.co.uk/The_Engineer_1954_Jul-Dec .
