The Review - Spring 2015 The Spring 2015 edition of The Review is out now. This edition contains an article by Baroness Pitkeathley based on her recent talk to the Society in London, Dorothy Dowding’s reminiscences of working at the Guernsey Press at the time of Liberation, Geoff Falla’s account of the Guernsey ‘Meteor’ and Earthquake of 1843, the second part of Sam Clapp’s article on French Catholic priests exiled in Guernsey, an article by Stephen Foote ‘Defoe’s Guernsey Lake’, a short history of La Grande Mare, and Michael Paul’s account of an early Battlefield tour in the 1920s. There has been a flood of new books to review many with a WW2 theme: including the diaries of Lieut Desmond Mulholland and Dr Alaistair Rose, and Patricia Best’s memoirs of her experience as a child evacuee. We also review the recently-published diary of a young Englishman, Andrew Mitchell, who visited to the Channel Islands in 1866, edited by Susan Ilie and John Le Dain. All in addition to the usual Island News and Membership News. The Review is distributed free to members three times a year. For more details see The Review.
