 Now in our Fifthteenth year of publication.

From the Editor.

In this final issue for 2018 we’ve a variety of news items, an account of SD’s attempt at an airport bus, details of numbers of SD’s surviving, news of what a former SD demonstrator got up to as a boy and as a young man and lots more. I hope you’ll enjoy it.

To all my readers I wish you a Happy Christmas and look forward to the next Newsletter in the New Year.
