We are always pleased to receive articles for publication in the Journal, preferably illustrated,
do contact the editor for more information

For the 2014-2018 issues we are looking for possible ‘snippets’ and pictures from affiliated societies about events
within their village that occurred as a result of World War I

More than enough will be written about the men and women of the armed forces during the centenary year,
but we want to look at it from a different angle – what went on in the Kent countryside and villages.

Not long articles, as there won't be room to fit everything in, but pictures and stories of around 200-2,000 words.
