Ser­vices to cooks and sailors

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IN ‘The Aga saga’ (March 15), Julie Hard­ing gives a good in­tro­duc­tion to this fine piece of heart-warm­ing en­gi­neer­ing beloved of the Bri­tish farm­house. She rightly cred­its Dr Gus­tav Dalén with its in­ven­tion and, as an ear­lier ser­vice to mankind, he had in­vented the sun-valve and the flash­ing ap­pa­ra­tus, both of which were in­stalled in nav­i­ga­tion buoys and light­houses—a valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to safety at sea for the world’s mariners. Paul Ridg­way, Rut­land
