'Blighty Magazine'

RBKC Local Studies

Cover of 'Blighty Magazine' which would have been sent out to the troops at Christmas

The Mayor of Kensington was assiduous in his efforts to make sure ‘The Kensingtons’, the 22nd Battalion of the Royal Fusiliers, were well equipped, ordering and paying for uniforms out of his own pocket from the last supplies of khaki Harrods had. He sent them briar pipes at Christmas and in one of the scrapbooks he kept he pasted a copy of this magazine, which would have been sent out to amuse the troops at the front.
