Following the launch of The British Phil Silvers Appreciation Society in 1984 Mick andSteve published the first edition of The

Fort Baxter Journal in March 1985. The magazine ran for a total of 19 issues (including 2 special double editions) and a series of

one sheet Bilko Bulletins. Although the early issues were crude by today's standards they were produced with great love and

enthusiasm for the subject matter...Mr Phil Silvers!


It was a heartwarming experience to discover that Phil enjoyed reading the first 2 magazines. With that in mind we are proud to 

reproduce Issues 1 & 2 of these much sought after monochrome gems for a whole new audience!


We proudly present Issues 1 & 2 of The Fort Baxter Journal... enjoy!
