Here are this weeks two issues, from 1972 it's No.2 and the same issue from 8 years later in 1980, the 1980 issue also has a scan of the free gift given away that week - The Bubble Yum bubble measurer, which would have been great fun but for the fact that they printed it on very thin card (almost paper actually) and so it was very tricky to hold in place. You can still get Bubble Yum on eBay here if you are inclined to use it, if not it's still a nice blast from the past to own for posterity, thanks to Dan for the issue and the gift....
