    Yep even slide rules (slip sticks for our US mates) were frowned upon in those days, but this little book was indispensable for logarithms, Sines. cosines and tangents and I will bet Mike knows the book well. As you can see from its condition I used it quite a lot.
    Ah the days of Naperian logs
    I do remember the first time we were allowed to take a slide rule into exams and the examiner checked each one to make sure we had not put any notes or formula on them. I mean "as if"

    There is an old jazz standard "Woody n you" composed by Dizzy Gillespie as a tribute to Woody Herman
