Excerpt from Professional Papers of the Corps of Royal Engineers, 1878, Vol. 2: Royal Engineer Institute Occasional Papers
It will doubtless be noticed, that while the present volume contains a great deal of interesting matter connected with the primary duties of the Corps - ... its military duties, there is an absence of information on points of construction and civil engineering, which, considering the very large number of officers employed in India on the public works, and the importance of the works executed, not only in India and the Colonies, but also at home by Engineer Officers, is much to be regretted.
