Not recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London' in its present form.

Suggests the implications of the paper require further elaboration. Refers to work of Meck [?].

Contains extra question - 'Is there any information contained in the paper which likely to be of value to the enemy?' Referee replies no.
