Scope and Contents

The papers include many items relating to Inglis's interest in the theory and practice of bridge-building, including his correspondence with Lt-Col. A.G. Gadd, RE, regarding the hasty development of the Inglis Portable Military Bridge in the face of pressing Army demands during 1940-1941. There are working notes and technical papers, as well as drafts of a number of after-dinner and speech-day orations, which provide an insight into Inglis's leisure interests.
