Rover Co Ltd - Drawing Office Handbook 

Mike Maher, chairman of the Rover Sports Register has kindly sent a copy of the Land Rover Drawing Office Handbook from the 1960's to share amongst the ALRC club members. It has originated from the good offices of retired Rover Engineers John Kellett, Eric Branson and Peter Willmer and  details such things as how drawings are to be produced and numbered, the standards to be adhered to etc.

This may be of interest to some of our members, especially those of you who own Land Rover Series vehicles.
