War Correspondents

Postby SpudUk » Thu Jul 04, 2013 10:02 am

Hello all,

My oldest sister has expressed an interest in WW2 re-enactment as I have got into it, and is interested in portraying a War Correspondent. I was wondering what sort of equipment they might have had?

Many thanks

Chris Auckland

My great uncle was Donald Wise- he needed little more than a decent 'phoneline, a reputation for confidentiality and an encyclopaedic knowledge of local bars and tailors for his 40 or so years in war zones.

Buy this book:-

Clare was the first person to report on the German invasion of Poland and she carried on reporting from a variety of theatres both during and after the war.
Still alive and living in Hong Kong.

Quite a few have suggested the book to me so it's a definite purchase!
