I am pleased to announce that the quarterly magazine of the Algiers Mission Band, A Thirsty Land, is now available online for the first time. The Algiers Mission Band, founded by Lilias Trotter in 1888. The magazine ran from 1927 until the agency joined with the North Africa Mission (currently AWM-Pioneers) in 1964. A Thirsty Land has been digitised in partnership with AWM Pioneers.
