This page contains various miscellaneous reference material for a range of military eras and sources.

Unit Newspapers, Publications and Magazines, WW1 and WW2

Whenever a unit stopped for a period of time a publication seems to have been high on the priority list of things to do. Unit publications provided information and an outlet for members views and news. Unit publications were subject to the comings and goings of unit members with an interest in producing a publication. Some publications were very short lived.

UK Ministry of Information Publications (His Majesty’s Stationery Office)

During WW2, the British Ministry of Information published a number of booklets on a wide range of topics. These were for public consumption and can be considered as positive propaganda. The booklet gave the public an insight into the workings and activities of units or a particular subject. Many of the titles were sold through New Zealand book retailers.
