We hope that readers like the 1st edition of our local history journal. Members of the Group are constantly researching and working on a variety of subjects concerning the history of Windsor and Eton. In some cases, the end result has been a book but sometimes the stories that have been discovered are more suitable for an article.

Other people besides ourselves may have memories or work they would like published. We would like to extend an invitation to our readers to contact us, with contributions to the Journal in the form of articles long or short, letters, notes, or queries. We would also gladly include old photographs.
