Journal of the Channel Islands Occupation Society

Published annually and alternately, by the Jersey and Guernsey Branches. The forerunner of the Channel Islands Occupation Review began in 1966. Early issues refer to the "German Occupation Society" and use the name SIGNAL and were printed on foolscap paper held together with staples. In 1969 the review changed its name to the "C.I. Occupation Review", which gave a much clearer picture of the material it contained, and in 1974 the review first appeared in booklet format.. The early issues are long out of print and are now collectors' items with some fetching phenomenal prices on eBay!
