Collection of 4 Guernsey newspapers from the time of the occupation. 2 are from 1940 and 2 from 1941 and generally regarded as more interesting as a result with more news

The 4 newspapers are as follows:

Evening Press Friday 12 July 1940 – 8 pages
The Star Thursday 8 August 1940 – 8 pages
Evening Press Tuesday 8 April 1941
Evening Press Saturday 26 April 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.26 (08/08/1940), no.223 (8/04/1941) & no.236 (26/04/1941). War news slanted from the German perspective, official notices, items wanted and for sale, cinema showings and much more

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