Guernsey is free! Announced in a Guernsey newspaper...



Item # 621329

May 14, 1945

EVENING PRESS, Guernsey, May 14, 1945  

* Nazis driven out
* World War II ends in Europe


This historic issue announces the end of the German occupation of Guernsey and includes front page heads:  "Invasion of Guernsey", "The King's Message and Proclamation by C.I. Commander" with a related front page photo.  The text begins: "The invasion of Guernsey is over. How great a contrast from what it might have been!..." with much more on this British island previously under Nazi control. Terrific to have this report in a Guernsey newspaper.
Four pages, 12 by 13 inches, very nice condition.
