We have Dan to thank for most of this batch, he provided three issues for this week, 1974 No.19 which included the Kung Fu pendant, a much revered and sought after gift both in the day and now too, but the chances of finding one are remote and you would have to be prepared to pay a bit, there is a great picture of the pendant included with the issue.  Also from Dan we have 1983 No.9 and 1976 No.10, which I bought myself recently, but this has saved me a scan job so i'm grateful.  My offering is a requested issue from the group, from 1979, it's No.2 with the saintly Ian Ogilvy on the cover...
