    We have just acquired the proceedings of of the institute of municipal and county engineers for 1941 / 1942 and what an interesting book it is too. Full of details of air-raid shelters, ARP Aiding Depots, data and diagrams of EWS installations plus a whole lot more.

    This 'archive wants' has been a huge success, with nearly 1000 items now cataloged though this does include a bit of duplication.
