Back in the 1980's these additional pages where sold separately as 'Data Sets' and split between International Data Set and a UK data set. I still have some 1980's ones in my old Winchester, quite nostalgic in a way, but the information is very much out of date now of course.
If you want to know the Sunrise and Sunset times for London in 1988 without the internet..... then I'm your man!
They included things like:
- BBC World Service Short Wave Frequencies and Programmes. - Sadly BBS WS is no longer broadcast on Short Wave Radio!
- Contagious Diseases and Vaccinations
- International Clothing Sizes
- Seasonal Temperatures around the World
- Some Notable London Eating Places
- UK Travel Information - lists of phone numbers for wonderful things like 'Motorail'
- Wine Vintage Chart
In modern versions you get:
- Personal Information
- Travel Information
- UK Road Distances
- European Union Members - Capital, Currency, Time, Dialling codes National Holidays
- International Information - Capital, Currency, Time, Dialling codes National Holidays
- Notable Dates for that year
- Weights and Measures
- Clothing Size Equivalents
Having started using the 'Ray and Steve' inserts exclusively this year I've been looking at the additional pages from previous years diary inserts to see which ones I should create not as a direct copy of course, but with similar information and to make them available on Philofaxy.
However, looking at the list above how many people refer to the information contained on these pages and which pages?
