World War 2 Newsletters By David Thacker

I have a nearly full set of the above which were produced monthly by Northampton Post Office for staff and families at home and the ex-staff now away in the services all over the world. There are 306 pages of closely typed text which I have scanned and put on line. I have indexed about 280 names and am tracing families who may wish to read the material. Please click on the link below to view the scanned images.

I'm eager to trace families of the following people who I have photos of:

Jack Thorpe

Cyril Collins

Reg Collins

AG Harrison

Bill Brown

Fred Bird

Mavis Payne

George Sabin

Alfred Waddup

Herbert York

Edward Marriott

RHW Marriott who perhaps lived at 12 The Warren Hardingstone.

before I pass all the papers and photos to the British Postal Museum and Archive.

I'd be grateful if you could alter the links.

All the best,

Dave Thacker
