100 years young
Would you believe it, we were having a pedantic argument about the words ‘use’ and ‘utilise’ (if in doubt use ‘use’), and something useful came of it.
Someone well read person introduce the word ‘utile’.
Wow, never heard of that one.
And googling that bought up Utile Engineering – a British company manufacturing modern versions of the thing it was making 100 years ago, on the same Northamptonshire site – gas compressors in this case.
Hats off to Utile Engineering.
BTW, Utile is an adjective that seems to mean: advantageous, useful, being of service
