Interstitital-Free Steels, Jamshedpur, India

Harry attended this conference organised by Tata Steel and held at Jamshedpur in India. The meeting was exicting with a lot of new information not just on physical metallurgy but also the manufacturing processes.

It also provided a wonderful opportunity to get together, albeit briefly, with a lot of colleagues and friends. Those who were in the vicinity but could not attend, we talked on the telephone.

The journey was from Pohang by air to Seoul, followed by a flight to Singapore, on to Kolkatta, by train to Tatanagar, return by train to Kolkatta, flight to Dubai, from Dubai to London, by train to Cambridge. And then back to Seoul and by bus to Pohang.
