I've managed to spend a lot of the weekend sorting through old papers from the Lions' archives. We have club directories from 1954 to 1998, but then there are a few gaps. With luck, one or more members will find that they haven't destroyed some of the recent directories. We do have a copy of every carnival programme from the first (1964) to the last (1991), and I am now sorting the copies of Jungle Jottings. The first was in April 1951 and we have several photocopies of that issue. In theory, there should be about 600 (I can't be bothered to do the maths, and in any case there were some months without an issue) but I'm pretty sure I don't have anything like that number!
