Wirebird: The Journal of the Friends of St Helena

Wirebird: The Journal of the Friends of St Helena is published annually for the members of the Friends.

A detailed index of subjects covered since the first edition in 1990 can be read.  Members will also find they can upload and read full copies of every edition by logging into the site with their password and user name and then clicking into an upload icon.  Please see our Membership page for details of how to join our Society.

Articles, notes, and correspondence, including any relevant illustrations, for publication in Wirebird are invited from anyone interested in St Helena and its dependencies, not only from members of the Friends.  Contributions from Saints themselves are especially welcome.  All contributions should be in keeping with the aims of the society, which are -

"to provide information about the island of St Helena, including its history, culture, environment and current affairs; and also to provide practical support to the St Helenian community."

All enquiries should be emailed to the editor, Colin Fox
