is back!


YES, after a break of over two years, your favorite quarterly publication is back, with a newly amended title, WARTIME NEWSREEL. It's the same style publication but now with 20 pages in each edition and retains the same A4 format. Now Edited by the former Co-Editor, Barry Wilbraham, it features the personal reminiscences of the veterans themselves, most previously unpublished, and covering all aspects of the Second World War. The first 'paper' edition rolled off the presses at the end of May 2014 in readiness for the 70th Anniversary of D-Day. To those of you reading this for the first time, the publication was the brainchild of Marilyn Ward, who in 1994, was the Co-ordinator for the 50th Anniversary of D-Day in Dorset. Along with County Tourism Officer, Barry Wilbraham, they helped co-ordinate the many veteran groups and parades and produced brochures giving details of all the troop movements at that time, US, Canadian and British, plus maps of where those installations were. Working with the Normandy authorities, and the ferry operators, a programme began to develop including the commemorations on Utah Beach and Arromanches. From that activity a newsletter was born which introduced a few of the reminiscences of those veterans who could recall those battles, just like it was yesterday. So, with the support of the many veteran associations, and the veterans themselves, Wartime News was born in 1995. That was 69 issues ago, and it is available now on subscription (UK only).
