Magazines / Downloads


On this page there is a selection of articles, books and annual volumes of magazines which can be freely downloaded. Most are in PDF format and will require Adobe Reader to view them. Simply click on the link to download. The pictures in all volumes prior to 2012 of the Friendly Companion are set to low resolution to reduce the size of the files.  Although all annual volumes of the magazines from 2004 onward are available here freely, the complete sets of both magazines from their commencement can be purchased on DVD or USB from the Publications web site here.  These are also fully indexed and cross-linked (the advantage of the USB is that clicking on an index entry will open the relevant magazine at the correct page).
