HDS Aus-Pac members contributed stories to the HDS US magazine and Jeff Maynard was the Australian editor for that magazine.
Due to this, the newsletter had much less historical diving content than todays Classic Diver.
From Issue #2 to Issue #14 the format was an A5 booklet (A4 folded).
Issue #15 was a couple of A4 pages printed both sides.
