Headlines from History – November military events

In honour of Remembrance Day, during the month of November, The British Newspaper Archive will be focusing our attention on military in the newspapers.  Coming up this month we will feature blogs about our special military titles, researching military history, women and war, and wartime rationing and fashion, as well as a guest blog about a remarkable Great War discovery from The Archive.  To begin our military month, we are delving into the newspaper headlines through the years for the month of November.

The British Newspaper Archive is an excellent historical source for the First and Second World Wars.  However, the British armed forces have been involved in conflicts for centuries both at home and abroad.  All of which, can be explored through newspaper research.
