The second journal for 2016 (47/2) left the printers in June. A small percentage of people are still subscribing surface mail from overseas - everyone else outside the UK should have received their copies by now, IF you've subscribed airmail. Please note that the difference in cost between surface and airmail is small - £2 or $3 - but the difference in speed and reliability of delivery is significant!
