    • Notes: A separate piece of paper refers to the Kent Mills Group who did some research regarding the cover picture which is not Sutton Valence windmill, as that had a black tarred body and distinctive two storey white painted roundel. After much discussion, it was suggested that the cover painting is of White Mill, Headcorn, a smock mill which was demolished in 1952.
