Back issues

Cumulation issue 8-9

Issue Cumulation 8-9

(UK only)
(Outside Europe)

The cumulation brings issues 8-9 back into print but looking better than they did in those cruder days over 20 years ago. This issue is type-set, retaining the picture of Wilf Scott's Hyde Park display on its cover (as in issue 9). Cumulations are in response to those who correctly argue that every issue of Fireworks should be kept in print. Otherwise firework history would be lost to newer readers. The programme will continue until all back issues are back in print.

Main items are:

  • Sultan and Festival Fireworks Join Forces - Bill Davis describes the merger
  • Jersey's Battle of the Flowers - Paul Edwards describes the firework preparations
  • Edenbridge Bonfire Society - Fireworks and Effigies remembered by David Watts
  • In the Frame - Paul Tierney provides an idea for shell firing boxes
  • Shetlands Provides Rival to the Midnight Sun - David Mussell of Nationwide Fireworks describes the event
  • A pyrotechnic Christmas Carol - by Ron Lancaster
  • Fallas 1985 - Valencia - David Amabilino provides history and description
  • Hyde Park - the Big Display. Wilf Scott describes his Le Maitre show
  • Book Review of Conkling - provided by Ron Lancaster
  • Americoround - John Bennett and Don Haarman describe the scene
  • Around the Bonfire Societies
  • Publications Ramble
  • Information Exchange
  • Plus: Round up; Editorial; Quotes; Letters; Books & Publications; Nostalgic pictures
