(We have used a different gallery system for this page so that the image quality is good enough to be able to read the small newsprint; unfortunately, once you open the gallery it isn’t easy to get back to this page to view the other album galleries. To return to this page, please use the top menu and select ‘sources & archives’ then ‘The Wadkin archive’ then scroll down to ‘newspaper clippings’. Apologies, for how fiddly this is!)
