Collection of 4 Guernsey newspapers from the time of the occupation. 3 are from 1940 and 1941 and generally regarded as more interesting as a result with 1 from 1944 when conditions had deteriorated considerably for islanders

The 4 newspapers are as follows:

Evening Press Saturday 27 July 1940
The Star Monday February 3 1941
Evening Press Wednesday April 23 1941
The Star Saturday January 29 1941

Interesting historical items from the only part of the British Isles to be occupied by the Germans during World War 2. They give an insight into the news available at the time and life on the Island.

Articles include: Today’s lesson in German (which was often cut out of the paper at the time) no.233 (23/04/1941) and no.171 (3/02/1941). A notice to growers of potatoes and the requirement to grow as many as possible in 1941, an order for the temporary rationing of clothing and footwear, various notices regarding an emergency census, illegal ownership of a States Dairy can and war news together with items for sale and wanted

Papers in generally good condition with some wear and tear given age but all very readable
