    I've been searching without joy for a copy of the following:

    Royal Journal of Artillery 92, No. 1. (March 1965)

    Specifically the article entitled "Full Employment" by J. P. Ferry concerning 26 Field Regt's patrolling in the early emergency.

    I can't locate a copy for sale anywhere and wondered whether it graced the groaning shelves of any of the members here? If anybody can provide me with a copy of the text (or even sell me a copy of the journal), I'd be very grateful.

    Mods: apologies if this is in the wrong location.

    James.

    In Cassino at the moment but if you email me I will see if the RA Historical Society have this when I get back to UK on Mon.

    WorldCat has a number of possible sources. If you are near one of the universities it may be worth checking if they allow access to the general public – many have schemes and are generally pretty approachable to genuine research requests. The British Library will give you access in person also and provides a remote delivery service which may be a bit pricey though. You could also try the Inter-library loan system – I’ve been able to obtain some pretty obscure stuff in the past.

    N.B. Your item will be offsite in most cases so you would need to pre-order it.

    Alas, I am an ex-pat and 5,500 miles from London.

    Hopefully Frank will be able to obtain a copy for you James.

    N.B. for future reference, WorldCat is an American tool that accesses library catalogues worldwide. If you skip to the end of my search for example you will find copies in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa - just change the location field as appropriate to prioritise those nearest to you.
