Typical Local News Reports from WW2

Local Newspaper Reports

Here we show a typical page from a local newspaper which, like so many others, had several reports of men missing or killed or prisoners of war.

The page from the Bromley & District Times reports on an Air Attack on Dover Harbour, a gift from the Deputy Commissioner of Kent of a mobile canteen for those whose homes are destroyed, the Roll of Honour for the Queen’s Own West Kent Regiment and an obituary for a soldier from Bromley (in this case Pilot Officer John Allen).
