The fact that Russell has already done this illustrates his efforts on behalf of the society.
Well said John ;)

I think anyone being asked to root out permission to use copyright material most definitely goes well above and beyond any reasonable expectation.
To be clear, I'd love to see the earlier Journals available in digital format. If anyone wants to request permission from the copyright owners, I'll give them the details that I have (I have copies of most Journals, and I'm sure people here would help fill in the author names that I don't have).

Just be aware that it'll be a lot of work.

I certainly have no objection to my work being digitised.
And it'd be nice to to get the chance to grab past Journals from my "missing years" when I lapsed in membership.

Many (most?) people don't object. But people have vehemently objected in the past, and some of them stopped writing for the Journal as a result. We simply don't have the right to digitise earlier Journal content without express permission. It's a real shame, but there it is.

If your missing Journals are earlier than issue 53, then regular eBay searches are probably your best bet.

Understood: I was just putting it on record that, should digitisation happen, my permission is granted.
(And I really should write more...)

Thank you. Of course, it would help if I knew who you are ;)

You mean you don't know?! ;)
Paul A Allcock.
Only wrote a couple of articles/ letters (for early issues - around numbers 5 or 6), and the article I remember most prompted some confused responses... c'est la vie. (Although I discovered years later that someone had used it create a on-line armour penetration calculator).

I seem to remember a pair of articles about how to calculate effective armour thickness and armour penetration. I hadn't realised they were yours :)

I think a few of us could do more Paul. I need to get my writing mojo back :cry:
