2021 issues differences between online archive and Australian edition

As per my previous posts (here and here for reference), I will make a posting of all differences I see between the online version, and the physical copies we receive here in Australia. I will start from the year 2021 December, the latest issue at hand here in Australia, and work my way back in time.

2021 December:

Page 12-13. Note that in the archive version, section on okapi/thorny devil is split in two. In the AU version, the okapi is spread over two pages, and it says page no.13 on page 13 ("page no. 13" is absent in online version).

There are more ads and the ads are different (as expected). Everything else in 2021 December is identical. I can not see the map supplement for this issue online.

2021 November:

Identical save for the advertisements.

2021 October:  

Although paid content, the Columbia Sportswear pages are missing (goes from 'Ages to Equity' to 'The Frigid Fifth Ocean of the South"). Everything else is identical.

2021 September:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

I can not see the map supplement for this issue online.

2021 August:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

2021 July:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

2021 June:  

-"A King's Curious colors" page not present in Australian version. 

2021 May:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

Note: Pages 97-98 and 99-100 are badly imaged in the online archive (sections cut off)

2021 April:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

2021 March:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

2021 February:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

2021 January:

-"A year we won't forget" is the first page after the first advertisement. 

-'A daylong show of commitment' is then after that page followed by the year in pictures. So first few pages are rearranged.

-Page with heading "embracing a history with photographs" is missing (as is the ad on next page). So our page numbers go from page 8-9 to 12-13.

-Page 14-15 I noticed is missing in both the online archive and the Australian version (jumps from page 12-13 to 16-17).

-Pages 22-23 (A family's secret, a new life in America) is missing from the Australian version.

-Features pages are identical.

-Last set of pages there is less ads in Australian version.

So overall for the year 2021, 8 issues were completely identical in content, 2 had content missing (June and January), 1 had a 'paid content' section missing, and December was identical save for the slight image resizing over two pages as opposed to one.
