Here is some excellent news!  A searchable version of Pawley's book "BBC Engineering 1922 - 1972" is now available on the official BBC website. 

A copy of the book was scanned by Nick Cutmore in 2018, but I did not put it on BBCeng due to concerns relating to copyright.  Since then Phil Laven has liaised with the BBC regarding the book and as a result the BBC has published Nick's scan.

Here is the link to the book.  For future reference, it is also linked from the Books page, about half way down and highlighted.

Many thanks to both Nick and Phil.
