I think I'll put together what I can for now with the scraps of info I have and perhaps some extra places/dates may appear through this thread over a period of time.

Hi Robert ...

I don't know where you live, but the Guildhall Library in London has a full run (AFAIK) of Lloyds List, and are most helpful. About a year ago I looked up in there for info on the RdM in 1973, they were most helpful, and you don't have to book anything either. From request to delivery of document was about 5 mins, and it was latish on a Saturday afternoon as well.

If you are not around London, then I suspect other big maritime city libraries may have them, failing that perhaps University or College libraries perhaps ?

Good hunting ...
