Scope and content

Congratulates O'Beirne on his election as a Corporate Member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Also expresses sympathy for the wartime bombing suffered by Clydebank: 'We heard of the 'Blitz' over Glasgow and regret to learn of so many deaths, etc. However, [we] are sure your people have the right spirit and will pay back many times over. Many of our towns have had similar rough times but are all quite cheery and waiting 'DER TAG' which will give us our revenge.'
