“Over the years people have asked for back issues of the BMS Newsletter. We have decided to make back-issues freely available to all in the interests of making the information accessible to the widest possible audience. Until the advent of the home PC Newsletters were produced by typewriter and then photocopied, meaning that the quality of reproduction was somewhat variable and this is reflected in some of the scans.
We have produced fully searchable pdf files from original hard copies, and concentrated on making the text readable. This has unfortunately resulted in the photos generally being of poor contrast. Going forwards this problem will not arise as we shall convert original WORD files to pdf format, with full resolution photos included. The most recent six issues of the BMS Newsletter will be held back and are available to subscribing members only. As each new Newsletter is published, another digital back-issue will be up-loaded, and so on.
Thanks are due to Carol Starkey for undertaking the time-consuming task of scanning the back-issues.”
