Well, progress has slowed a little in the last few months. I blame day-job, and the advent of sailing conditions.
Part I & II are still in my 'Box' directory. Part III was threatening to become over-large so I have split it into Parts III and IV. Part III, taking us up to around 2000, is also now available to anyone who wants to take a critical look and offer me some feedback (still awaiting a couple of images for this part). See Members Area->Your Files->Documents->Chris Gallienne->History. Part IV is probably around 50% complete.
Part III covers the somewhat controversial developments by Bunny Smith & al., and the subsequent JRA-funded research project at Exeter University. Many members will remember these developments, and some will have played a part. I expect they will therefore understand them better than I, and I hope may offer corrections and/or constructive criticism.
