Step into Bromley’s Past through Historical newspapers

Old Newspapers are a wonderful source of information. I have been working with the Bromley and District Times during World War 1 and its aftermath collecting and listing the names of military personnel who have featured in it for my Military Ancestors project.

I hope you enjoy reading them too.
