Many thanks for this information, I hadn't noticed this. Was seriously thinking of signing up on the Newspaper archive site, so has saved me over £70.

That's why I posted, glad to have been of some help

yep me too, confirmed a few things tonight myself :-) :-)

I found that it is better to search on the Newspaper archive site itself as it has better search criteria and then if anything comes up then go to FMP to get the image.
