Jersey - 10 May 1945


A well-known schoolmaster came into the 'E.P' {Evening Post, Jersey} office yesterday and whispered to a member of the staff ''Have you heard the latest ? They have got Goering.'' You needn't whisper'' replied the E.P man. ''No I forgot,'' replied the schoolmaster and immediately shouted it to all the people present in the office. No, there is no need to whisper, not any more; but it shows clearly the effect of five years of repression miscalled ''freeing Europe.''

The above paragraph is extracted from the front page of The Evening Post, St Helier Jersey May,10 1945. Written by The News Editor William Troy MM, (1889-1976).


With the compliments of William Troy's Grandson, Peter Troy
