Once you select a Flying Petrel, an Internet Archive page will open, featuring the item. The important links for viewing the item are on the upper-left hand side of the page.
We recommend selecting “Read Online” (in the upper left-hand side of the page). If you select Read Online, you can “flip” the pages by clicking on them.
Each Flying Petrel is full-text searchable (you can search by names, event, etc.). The search feature is not 100% accurate, however, so please also browse through the pages.
If you would like to download or print the item, select the PDF version once the Internet Archive page opens.
