 Friends magazine at Bath.
      Friends was a great underground magazine and now has a presence on the net through Phil Franks , who took many great photos of the era . There are a number of these on the Philm Freaks  website here as well as the recollections of Sam Hutt , one of the people who ran the medical tent at Bath. Please respect Phil's request NOT to rip off his photos and use them on your websites, or in any way whatsoever,but most especially NOT for commercial gain . 

There are many great links at the site too, check it out.
