Metrication – a historical perspective

I have submitted this blog article to draw attention to and allow comment on an historical account of metrication in the UK written in 1980. This article is reproduced on the UKMA web site, namely:

“Historical perspectives by the last Director of the UK Metrication Board”

by Jim Humble OBE

I believe this is a very informative account, full of surprises and well worth a read.
