The Spring 2020 Review is out now!

RGS_2020a_cover
The Spring 2020 edition of The Review is now with the printers, and should hopefully be making its way to members shortly.

This edition contains an article about the Spanish Flu pandemic that swept the world just after World War 1 – with eerie parallels with the current situation. There are also some letters that Eddie Clark’s family received from liberated Guernsey, just weeks after liberation – to mark the 75th Anniversary. Yan Marquis’ poem “Note Lingo” promotes the revitalisation of Guernesiais (with translation). And Susan Lloyd’s DVD “Discovering Guernsey” is featured.

In Guernsey Around the World, we explore why there isn’t a place in America called “New Guernsey” – the first of a two-part article.

Book Reviews include three new publications which would have been on the (now-cancelled) Guernsey Literary Festival: In Living Memory, curated by Olympia McEwan; Across the Channel – the memoirs of Major-General Sir Donald Banks; and Guernsey Occupation Diaries 1940-1945 of Rev Douglas Ord, edited by John Nettles.

The Island News, which was put together just as the Covid-19 pandemic was breaking out in the island, will be hopelessly out of date by the time you receive it.

The Review is sent free to members three times a year – for more details, seeThe Review.
