Really? I thought that it was Joseph Day that invented the valveless two-stroke engine although I read somewhere that it was one of Day’s employees (a Mr Cock I think) who came up with the idea of using the skirt of the piston to control the inlet port and hence do away with valves altogether.

If this is correct I can’t see that Alfred Scott designed anything new?
