The VBSA website is continually evolving, now all board members may create an item on the front page of the site. While Paul Cosgriff is not a member of the Board he will still be posting information and reports from overseas. These items will not be removed, so you will be able to go back and see any item that has been posted. Naturally, over time, items will become difficult to find so "Searches" have been include so you can find any particular item either by it's title or a keyword in the content. Items will appear by their date with the newest first, some items will be selected to remain at the top of the front page as they are considered important.
10 Items will be listed on the font page and subsequent pages, just scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see the page navigation links.
Please, if you see anything not working or broken links report them to Alan Croft
