There appears to be a section of the Army pushing for the adoption, but their efforts are always cancelled by a mysterious stronger opposition. It is now over four years since the Army came to me urgently.

Apart from the proven great advantages of the use of my differential, one would think that, with the existing acute position of spares and the tools and jigs already available, the manufacture of units for replacement alone would be well warranted.

It might also be of interest to you to know that as the result of my association with th« Ordnance Production directorate as design engineer I have now been appointed chief mechanical engineer of the Army Inventions directorate.

There is a specific case in which a DirectorGeneral of Production would have been able to remove a bottleneck. I hope that the Minister for the Army will look into this matter, and that if he has any doubt about it he will refer it to the new inventions board.
