This is the 3rd issue of the year for 2020 (our 34th year of publication). This issue has a detailed ADF manual on the new Hawkei Mobility Vehicle for which very little has been published to date. As usual I have to thank those people who have kindly allowed us to reproduce their articles and photos this issue, in particular the following - Bruce Chapman, Mick Mirkovic, Clarke Cone, Hadyn Neal, Dave Muir, Peter May, Ryan Hamilton, RAAF & the AHMWA. Don't forget that all photos credited to these individuals are subject to copyright and cannot be reproduced without their written permission. I also am grateful to Ley Reynolds for the review material.

Don't forget that all and any contributions to this publication are always welcomed, so send any material to the editorial address (P.O Box and email listed at the end of this page), or hand it to me at club meetings (assuming we get to have another physical meeting at some time...)
