In the last seven days, we added 182,120 pages to The Archive. This includes four new titles and additional issues to fourteen existing titles. Joining The British Newspaper Archive this week are two new titles from Wales – Abergavenny Chronicle and Tenby Observer – and one from Scotland – Milngavie and Bearsden Herald. Another new title is the Weekly Casualty Lists (War Office & Air Ministry) published during the First World War. The weekly lists printed the names of soldiers who died as well as those who were wounded or missing. The War Office and Air Ministry updated and published the lists weekly.
