    I guess they are in that document mentioned in your other thread?

    I'm also interested in 49 Div and 8thAB and going to the NA at some stage in the next few months. Sorry can't be more specific because I don't yet know myself! Will put it on the to-do list....just hope it's easier than first impressions to navigate around the document which looks like 'heavy' reading.
