Magazines were made for the Apple family and not just
the Apple IIe. (With the exception of the IIGS).

The major UK magazine at that time was Windfall.

In fact that's only part of the truth.....
In fact in that days there have been a lot of local User Groups founded
that started getting organized to major international User Groups
and most of them published own magazines for their own members...:

and Windfall was a publication formerly from the British Apple User Group (BAUG )....
later it was continued with the new name "Apple User" in January 1984....:

Thanks! I've been trying to track down a specific monitor that I had as a kid and am hoping to see a photo of it in an advert as I go through the mag. So far no luck. http://www.amibay.com/showthread.php?t=68355

Sorry that you didn't find it.....
It was 3 years ago a entire week scanning the complete years of magazines,
converting them to .PDF files and uploading the compacted file....

Pretty cool that you did that! I don't think I had any magazines back in the day so it was lovely to read them.
