This is a list that I'm trying to put together from "The Australian" Special Edition October 3-4 1992. If anyone can help me with corrections or ommissions, please EMAIL me. Any further information would be greatly appreciated. Eventually I hope to have photographs to accompany the text.

I really want this to be an accurate record so if you know of any mistakes, please EMAIL me.
