Wycombiensians

Finally I have finished scanning all the Wycombiensians sent to me by the Fabulaous Fortyniners, without whose help this website would be much leaner.
Now's your chance for a good read while passing all that time you'll soon be spending on your gardens, cruisin' holidays etc.
Please see if you can help me track down the few missing editions to complete the topic. Any year before 1957 please, all editions after 1957 to John Saunders.

Great piece of work, Tony, many thanks.

As the ultimate 'history of RGS' geek, it will keep me absorbed for ages!

I have just added the 1950 September edition. I am now worrying that GCHQ or the CIA will spot the prohibited word in the title of the article on page 783 and make me redact it or even take the website down.
I have also added a couple of items which came to light while scanning these old book, namely a discussion on the School Arms by B Peaty and a photo of the 1949-50 OW 1st XV. You can see these on the "http://www.rgs.tonyhare.co.uk/miscellaneous/miscellaneous.htm" tab on the website.
