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

The 4 newspapers are as follows:

Evening Press Wednesday 21 August 1940
Evening Press Monday September 9 1940
Evening Press Wednesday January 29 1941
Evening Press Friday March 21 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.

All papers include Today’s lesson in German (which was often cut out of the paper at the time) A notice to all late growers of potatoes, a report on the first cricket match played by Sark against another Channel Island, various notices regarding Income Tax, The Farm Board and an article on the consequences of sabotage, together with general adverts illustrating life during the occupation.

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