We had a committee archives day late last year, kindly hosted by Peter Millington & Neil Harrison, who provided a spectacular lunch for us as we went through quite a few cubic metres of dusty ancient history. We found interesting documents from the dawn of the society, and propose to gradually publish them over time.

A few interesting items:

The original founding members ledger, page one, from 1936.
Charter of the WFSV
A letter about the foundation
Hosie’s Hotel
