Swinging Radio England Boss 40, 18th September 1966

Per Arne Berggren has very kindly provided two incomplete Swinging Radio England charts (the other one is here). He says: “Please find attached a couple of charts from Swinging Radio England - the upper part only unfortunately. I was not a regular listener since the receiving conditions of the signal from Radio England in Kristiansand, South Norway, where I grew up, was not that good.” Can anyone provide the rest of this chart - or any other SRE countdowns?
 
Although we have referred to this chart as a “Boss 40”, the name of Swinging Radio England's chart changed over the few months the station was on the air. They used a “Boss 40” at the time of the launch but we are not certain how long that name was used. At some point the station switched to a “Fun Fifty”.
