Summer 2014 edition of The Review is out now

The Summer 2014 edition of The Review is out now – containing a range of articles on Guernsey past and present.
The Review of the Guernsey Society - Summer 2014

This edition contains the story of Cockleshell, a boat designed by Jonty Sherwill’s grandfather, AJ Barber in 1926, and still going strong. It contains two differing stories of French exiles in the island – Stephen Foote’s tale of Protestant ancestors persecuted in the 1680′s and Sam Clapp’s account of Catholic priests persecuted during the terror of the French Revolution a century later. Peter Keeling tells of a recent visit to Africa with his Guernsey-based charity ‘The Friends of Katete’.

There is also exciting news of a campaign for a Blue Plaque for our founder Sir Donald Banks, a very distinguished Guernseyman, as well as the imminent publication of a revised and updated version of Peter Johnston’s ‘A Short History of Guernsey’, to be published by the Society in October.

All of this in addition to the usual members news, a summary of the recent news from Guernsey and book reviews.

Full details can be found on The Review page.

The Review is published three times a year, and is sent free to all members.

An index of articles from past reviews (1945-present) can be found here, together with details of how copies can be obtained.
