“Dunlop in War and Peace,” by Sir Ronald Storrs, K.C.M.G., C.B.E. (Hutchinson, 8s. 6d.)
This 147-page book may be said to cover everything anyone wants to know about rubber. More than that, it tells the story of Dunlop at war — the bombings, the fires, the experiences of Dunlop officials in escaping from the Japanese and during internment, in fact, all the hazards which failed seriously to hamper the British war effort. There are illustrations (51 in all) to interest those who met Dunlop in each of the Services. And there is new data on salvaged rubber, synthetic rubber research, and new applications of rubber in many forms, including car and motor-cycle tyres for high-speed motoring.
