The Wipers Times was a newspaper that was written, printed, distributed and read by soldiers serving in the trenches of the Western Front of the First World War. It was deeply satirical, joyously lampooning the top brass, the enemy and the war itself in equal measure. As the battalion moved around during the war, the newspaper took on a series of new names – after being The Wipers Times it became The “New Church” Times, then The Kemmel Times, The Somme-Times, The B.E.F. Times, and finally, at the end of the war, The Better Times. Here’s the front cover of The B.E.F. Times from February 1918 – published two long years after the first edition – scanned in from a very rare surviving copy.
