‘The Wipers Times’ – a Review of the Soldiers’ Newspaper, March 1916

Posted on September 11th, 2013 by The British Newspaper Archive

With BBC2 broadcasting a historical drama about ‘The Wipers Times’ World War One newspaper tonight, we thought we’d do a search in The Archive to see if we could find any stories about this famous newspaper of the Western Front.

We found dozens of interesting stories about the paper itself and the men who wrote it, including this terrific article – from March 1916 – which tells the story of how the newspaper came to be published.

You can read other stories in The Archive about ‘The Wipers Times’ – just do a phrase search on the Advanced Search page for Wipers Times.
