Interesting how hidden history might play a part in today.
I don't have too much more material although in discussions or
otherwise buried in those documents there might be more information.
Peter van Dresser was a co founder of the rocket society.
I don't know the other founder.
Solid fuel rockets was stated as his specialty yet the improvement
in liquid fuel rocket performance was attributed to his design.
Running the fuel around the nozzel, still used today, to bring more
powerful combustion gave the V2 more range when incorporated.
Just as books and film footage might disappear, I recall WWII film
footage giving the boost idea to a German officer.
Given there were things to hide, is there a correction required here.
Perhaps only the parties long gone know for sure.
As with Willy Ley there might only be history in their personal file
after these events. Peter should have known Willy as a rocket
society participant, for Germany, who defected to America to
become a naturalized citizen. Willy an expert in microwaves
one proved some fact to Hitler and perhaps had to get away when
the opportunity arrived. Werner Von Braun was Willy Ley's
replacement. Young and given much authority in Germany helped
to ensure his return with very desirable secretes of the rocket
engine and perhaps of what made the Foo/Phoo fly.
