"Lynsted Times" Editions

These five titles were prepared in the run-up to the Lynsted War Memorial Exhibition, 10th November 2018 from original research by Nigel Heriz-Smith. For the Exhibition, there were 5 Issues under the general heading of "Home Front". These stories are drawn from newspapers over the wartime years (1914-18) and mostly come from our Parish (or at least Kent!). Each "newspaper" can be read by opening the PDF copies linked below. Eight more "Lynsted Times" were printed and widely enjoyed during the Lynsted Festival Weekend of 2016.
