Lovely old paper to read

Lavinia Bradley Trustpilot product review 3 star rating December 1 2020

Very disappointed. Only 3 pages and was very disappointed as it was to be a special gift but I have now had to go and find something else. It did arrive in a lovely box but as the box was virtually empty even that looked a bit ridiculous. If you had made contact with me and perhaps suggested an additional paper , I would have very happily paid for an additional copy of another paper.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    We will always provide you with your requested newspaper as it was printed on your selected date. As you have ordered a 1940’s date, during the Second World War, all newspapers were affected by the national rationing and therefore every newspaper only consisted of a few papers. The newspaper rationing continued until the early 1950’s. When you received your newspaper you should have received a card within the gift box to stating this information.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenienced caused.

    If you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us on 03300669700 or email us at [email protected]
