Excerpt from Proceedings: January-May, 1918
The certificates of all securities have been duly verified by the Finance Committee and the Auditor.
The Institution House being still occupied by e.m. Government, the General Meetings have been held in the Theatre of The Institution of Civil Engineers, for the use of which as well as the reading room and library the Council again desire to record their indebtedness and tender their hearty thanks.
The names of over one thousand members have now been received as being, or having been, on Active Service, many from the commencement of the War; and the Council regret that during the past year twenty-two have lost their lives in various parts of the world. Nine members of the Institution Staff have now joined the Forces, one of whom has died from wounds.
With a view to helping those still on active service, and other members engaged on war work, to find suitable employment on their return to civil life, the Council have prepared and issued to them, so far as their addresses are known, forms whereon they may record such particulars of their training and experience as will enable the Secretary to answer inquiries likely to bring together those offering and those seeking positions in engineering works or Offices. SO far about a hundred of these have been filled in and returned, and are now being analysed and tabulated for future use. It is almost unnecessary, though perhaps better, to add that all information given in this way will be treated as confidential, and will only be used for the benefit of the giver.
