When was this published? I checked today and I did order a copy but haven't received one yet.

The copies of Chalet School and Barbara, and Malcolm Savile's Rye Royale arrived from the printer on Tuesday of this week, according to a note from Clarissa on the News page of the new site. I imagine pre-ordered copies will have just been sent out, so you should be receiving yours soon.

Thanks for the information, Elder.

I think I was panicking because I saw 4 copies for sale on e-bay and mine hadn't arrived.

Typical me, I never search for the obvious.

It would be good if we can have a discussion on how much (if any) difference it makes to have the full book, especially if some of you have both versions.

The unabridged version includes some really nice descriptions of Switzerland, which aren't all in the Armada version. It's one of my favourites - the Gang come across very well in this.
