Been desperately trying to bring my old mags back 'home' after my mum chucked them away many moons ago while I was at university :?

Here's where I'm up to so far -

1988/9

Image

1990 (all complete bar June Vol 3 No. 6)

Image

1991 (all complete bar April Vol 4 No. 4)

Image

Needless to say, if anyone has those two copies for sale I'd be a very happy chappie :lol:

Got loads more as well, but these years were the 'golden' ones in my eyes, when I used to hop, skip 'n jump down to my local newsagent to pick a copy up the day it was release and rush back to savour ever word, hour after hour.....ahem... I think I'll stop there.....you get the jist!!

Cheers,

Matty :D

I also loved racing to the newsagents to get the latest issue!!.. 1989/1990 were the best years indeed!... Gutted i threw mine out after a few weeks of reading them.
