1982 fits with John starting at UNSW in August 1972 and being eligible for 26-weeks Sabbatical every 5 years.

The Unix Review article in 1985 was quite clear Dr Lions had been at Bell Labs twice on Sabbatical.

Leaving the June 1979 paper mentioned by Luther Johnson to be explained. Perhaps Recreation leave, not Sabbatical.
