IN 1919 the Evening News published a book to commemorate the First World War – and now we are bringing it back into print.

Edited by William G Gates, Portsmouth and the Great War was compiled to record the part Portsmouth played in the Great War. We are reproducing the original book to commemorate the 100th anniversary since the start of the war.

The book is available for £5.99. Call (023) 9262 2207 or visit for details.
