Thank you for Robert Cargill’s excellent work. It was so enjoyable to watch the development of the magazine during his time as Editor. The changes in appearance and content have been exciting to see but also reassuring, as BAR continues to provide excellent information and enjoyable reading. It seems to me that both he and Hershel really cared about the magazine and that they wanted others to care as well. Be assured that we do.
