By 1991 the summer excursions of the Society had become something of a tradition and that year saw the Society spend a weekend in Winchester, a city that has excellent canonical credentials.

As this handbook shows these credentials may be even stronger than hitherto imagined. During the course of research it was possible to link the ancestry of Dr Watson with a sixteenth century Bishop of Winchester and, even more important, to conclude that Holmes had undoubtedly received his education at Winchester College.

The title of the expedition and of the Handbook derives from part of the famous passage in The Bruce Partington Plans about Mycroft.  It refers to the fact that three Winchester stories by  chance refer respectively the metals copper, silver and (through Neil Gibson, the Gold King) gold.

Overseas members of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London have always needed to pay higher subscription rates than UK based members to cover the extra cost of postage and packaging for mailing the Sherlock Holmes Journal outside the UK. The Society is now changing the way it presents its membership prices so that the subscription is the same for UK and non-UK members, but the additional postage and packaging that are associated with overseas membership is now added on as a separate postage cost.
