    ON March 25 the British Scientific Instrument Research Association moved from 26 Russell Square, London, W.C.I. (now required by the owners, the University of London), to new headquarters at 17 Princes Gate, London, S.W.7. The March issue of the Bulletin of the Association records that the Russell Square premises were first occupied in November 1918, and that, from that date until October 1946, when the new laboratories at 'Sira', Chislehurst, Kent, were opened, the laboratories and all the activities of the Association were housed at Russell Square. Since the occupation of the new laboratories, the Russell Square premises have been the headquarters of the Association, the home of the Information Department and of the Optical Computing Department, and more recently also the offices of the Scientific Instrument Manufacturers' Association.
