A copy of each of the daily newspapers published in Guernsey in the early part of the occupation by the Germans
Later in the war the papers were published on alternate dates given the shortage of paper and so it is quite unusual to find both papers from the same date.
The papers have identical war articles on the front pages which is interesting in itself and the same notices regarding Colorado Beetle, tobacco supplies etc
Only the Evening Press has today’s Lesson in German however
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.
Papers in generally good condition with some wear and tear given age but both very readable
Please select large letter at the checkout as the papers have been folded in 4
