114-P10The arrival of Autumn 2014 was heralded for BCD members by the welcome thud of the fourth newsletter of the year dropping on to their doormats. A quick flick through this colourful 16-pager, fronted up with a report of September’s meeting at Malvern and an image of Wentworth’s “Lest we Forget” poppy puzzle, served as a good taster of what would be in store for us when we explored more deeply.

Sure enough, it was full of interest and information including details of all of our forthcoming activities through to next November. Amongst the items featured were members articles on a variety of topics including: preferences twixt cardboard and wooden puzzles; a comprehensive study of “Postcard-Size Puzzles by J. Salmon” (see image); a piece on Wentworth “Wooden” jigsaws for serious collectors; another entitled “My perfect puzzle and why?”, plus a full report of the previous meeting’s “Show & Tell” session, all supported by a collection of over sixty photographs, mostly in colour.

We are trying harder and harder to pose as many questions as possible now in our publications, hoping to weed out answers to many of our queries. This really is a fascinating hobby which can prove such an exciting mixture of pure enjoyment and more research-based interest to all who participate.

Last meeting of the year coming up at Chelmsford in November.
