Publications

By 1973, Leyland Australia employed nearly 6,000 people and occupied many sites around Australia. The size of the Company was comparable to that of many country towns and was served by several staff newspapers beginning with the BMC Reporter, the Review, the BMC Rosette, and lastly, the Leyland City Times.
The company was served by a series of excellent staff newspapers. Beginning with the BMC Reporter, in July 1957, this evolved into the Review, and then to the substantial BMC Rosette which was eventually supplanted by the Leyland City Times which ran for just two issues.
The Company produced at vast range of service and technical publications to assist the Dealers in maintaining their customers’ vehicles. The most well-known being the Workshop manuals, and the rarer Service Bulletins, many of these issued under the authority of Norm Prescott. Not so well known outside the company offices were Drawing Office Instructions, Standard Procedure Manuals, Product Fault Summaries, Engineering Standards, Engineering Technical Data Sheets, Service and Training Notes and the Partner magazine from Parts and Accessories Division.
From the Consumer perspective, the first written contact with the Company was most likely the product sales brochures. These were often issued several times to correct small mistakes and to make them more applicable to Australian customers. It was a notable feature of brochures to depict outdoor picnic scenes for vehicles of the 1960’s.
