DateReport
22 Dec 2016Investigation suggests that the 'missing' issues were never published. Early publication schedule was somewhat irregular and did not settle to the present four issues each year until after 1970.
20 Nov 2016Scanning completed and all scanned issues now available in member area. Some possibly missing early issues to be investigated. Consideration to be given to establishing either an index or a searchable composite file.
