Searching for a specific topic or subject:
The site search box can only search the pages on the site itself, not the text within the issues themselves. However, as each 'year' has a page which includes all that years tables of contents, the search will find all the issues which contain your search item. However, it will also offer you the 'Tables of Contents' page. Don't select this option as, although it will be in there somewhere, it won't be obvious where it is on a large page. On the other hand, if you're offered the 'Series Articles' page, that's a good one to choose as all the matches are likely to be grouped together on that page.
There is, however, a good way of searching the 'Tables of Contents' page.
Open that page and then use your browser's search option - usually function key [F3] or Ctrl F. That opens a search box in the corner of your screen and as you type it highlights all the matches in the document. It will tell you how many matches there are and provides cursor buttons allowing you to move up or down to the next/previous match.
There is also a 'Full Index' which is an alphabetical list compiled from the actual contents of the Warships to Workboats issues rather than just from their tables of contents.
This is the most comprehensive method of searching the issues and can locate items not mentioned in the tables of contents.,
