This is an abstract of Abercrombie's paper with Marriott “On Weather Prognostics” and “On Certain Types of British Weather” for the Meteorological Society. See: Tor Bergeron, “Synoptic Meteorology: An Historical Review” in Pageoph, Vol. 119 (1980/81), Birkhauser Verlag, Basel 1981. See p 451, particularly for Abercrombie's use of the Ley cyclone model. “It should particularly be noticed that C. Ley's model also gives the essence of the three-dimensional structure of a frontal low as we know it to-day...In this respect his model is a true forerunner to E. Palmen's three-dimensional model of the flow in a mature cyclone published in 1931. ..” Abercrombie also references our old friend Boys Ballot in regards to his meteorological law.
