HMS Trinidad torpodoes itself...

Item # 628265

June 2, 1942

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 2, 1942

* HMS Trinidad sinking
* Torpedoes itself
* World War II - WWII

Page 10 has one column headings: "British Reports Loss OF 8,000-Ton Cruiser" "Trinidad Had Convoyed Ships to Russia--Captain Is Rescued" First report coverage on the Royal Navy cruiser HMS Trinidad disaster. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. Complete in 40 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Very nice condition.
