'Another Edinburgh Office tradition over the first
half of the 20th Century was the production of very elaborate and
beautiful 'Illuminated Adresses' for retiring or leaving officers.
These artistic tours de force, illustrating the facets of
the officers career, must have taken many hours of time of the talented
draughtsmen who prepared them.'
"with the advent of 'costing' in the 1960's their
production ceased."....... (H E Wilson)
