Remembered Today:

Peninsula Press


Recommended Posts

I have come across a copy of the Peninsula Press No.57 dated Friday, 16th July 1915, one page only. I hadn't seen one before. Does anyone know anything about the publication, how often it was published and where etc? The footer indicates it was printed by the Royal Engineers Printing Section, G.H.Q., M.E.F.

I have had to squeeze the photograph resolution a little but hopefully it is still readable.

Kind regards

Compton Mackenzie in his 'Gallipoli Memories' has the following;

see page 107:

"Maxwell [the late Captain Sir William Maxwell KBE] in addition to acting as Official Censor and running the OI Mess was editing a daily sheet called The Peninsula Press which was served out to the troops as a tonic and even translated into French. This was the apple of Maxwell's eye."
