SABG newsletters

Edited by Richard White, copyright © SABG 2004 - 2017

The sterling work of the previous Newsletter Editors, Robin Attrill (2004 - 2006), Mick Reed (2006 - 2010) and David Victor (2010 - 2015) is gratefully acknowledged.

Note that these are not web pages but are available in two versions, either as PDF files or as Microsoft Word (DOC) or Open Document Text Format (ODT) documents. They were originally prepared as Word or, more recently, Libre Office documents, but the advantage of the PDF versions is that, depending on your web browser settings, your brower may treat them much like web pages, offering to display them on-screen, and you may be able to click on the web links they contain to go directly to any web pages which are mentioned. You may also wish to read them on your tablet or even on your smartphone.

With some older web browsers or particular settings, you may have to download and save them, and then open them (PDF files in Adobe Reader or other PDF reader or Word (.doc) or ODT files in Microsoft Office Word or LibreOffice). If this doesn't work the way you want, try clicking with the right mouse button and choosing to Open or Save the file.
