A R Bennett/C S Lake Award
The Alred Rosling Bennett Premium/Charles S Lake Award (Serial 314) is funded from the Trust for Education and Research
Bequest (£100) under the Will of the late A F Bennett (1928), confirming a Fund established in 1913. Augmented by a later gift from Mr W G Tilling (a co-founder member of ILocoE with Mr Bennett). The second prize fund was founded in 1951 by a donation (£250) from the Railway Gazette, made in 1943 in memory of C S Lake. The original intention had been to found a Library for ILocoE. Mr C S Lake was a member of ILocoE from 1914-1942. These two prizes have been amalgamated and the titles may be used either alternatively or in combination.
Awarded to the author or authors of a meritorious paper on the subject of Railway Engineering by Corporate or Non-Corporate Members of the Institution or for a contribution or for achievement in that field. Open to members and non-members of the Institution.
