Ghana Armed Forces News (a.k.a. "AF News"): It has been published with some regularity since 1967. With the exception of Vol. 1 Issue 1 and a chunk of papers from 1974-1976, , I'm unable to find back issues of this newspaper anywhere in the U.S. or Ghana. Do any subscribers know of a repository of this newspaper? 2. The Magazine of the Ghana Armed Forces Staff College (a.k.a. "The Flame"): Published annually since 1987. I'm seeking issues from 1990, 1991, 1993, and 1994. 3. Annual journals from Ghana's various peacekeeping battalions: Specifically, I'm looking for any/all from the Sinai contingent, issues from the Lebanon contingent between 1978 and 1987, and from 1989-1995. I'll try to describe all the places I've looked-maybe that may trigger some ideas or squash some false hopes! I've already looked here: PRAAD in Accra; Balme Library at Univ of Ghana; Kofi Annan Library at Univ. of Ghana; Ghana Armed Forces Director of Public Relations; Ghana Armed Forces Headquarters (Burma Camp) library; Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College library; Kofi Annan Int'l Peacekeeper Training Center library; George Padmore research library (Accra); Northwestern U Africana library; Worldcat search. I hope dedicated H-netters can offer some help! You may email me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com> John V. Clune firstname.lastname@example.org
