NEWNES PRACTICAL Magazines - Many years ago I bought a huge cardboard box of magazines, most were Practical Engineering and edited by FJ Camm. Unfortunately the whole lot were stolen in 1999 and until tonight i had never found any reference to the practical series of magazines anywhere. Although I understand that today's Practical Classics magazine is a descendant so to speak. I also thought that FJ Camm was simply a name used by several different persons as a generic pen name. He must have been absolutely brilliant because of the breadth of engineering subjects covered and the enormous number of books and articles published. If anyone ever comes across any issues of Practical Engineer they may wish to sell, please contact me, Ron Bunting at

The TRIUMPH: In the 1930's I used to get the "Triumph" and have fond and close memories of a story by Jack Maxwell called "Geraldi Rebel of the Hills" which according to [Steve Holland's] information ran from 8 Sept until 10 Nov 1934. I would dearly love to have access to these stories even if simply to see if they had any formative role in my own politics - hardly possible as I was only 9 at the time - at least that is my excuse for seeking a pathway in nostalgia.
