Each issue of the Wipers Times was normally one page long and mimeographed to be sent to the troops in the trenches. There were some minor advertisements, entertainments and contained a takeoff of the Sherlock Holmes series by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, although the principal characters were not used, but were assumed to be in the series. Other short stories were included, and continued, when possible. Casualties were replaced in some of the stories, while others ceased to be mentioned.

The Wipers Times book. The "Wipers Times"(it acquired different titles over time)was a humorous newspaper produced on a purloined printing press in the trenches of the Great War. Humour, notoriously, does not last from generation to generation, but somehow the wit of these soldiers comes up fresh. In his forward, Ian Hislop says these men were laughing in the face of death, but theirs was not a gallows humour, but rather a friendly cheerfulness that lacked rancour. An astonishing document.

Often produced in hazardous conditions, at one point only 700 yards from the front line, it acted as the voice of the average British soldier, relaying his experiences, grief, and anger during the entire conflict. At times irreverent, at times hysterical, its humor and satire provide an excellent insight into life in the trenches in the First World War.

In February 1916, Captain F. J. Roberts of the British Expeditionary Force produced the first edition of The Wipers Times. Usually produced in hazardous conditions—at one point production was only 700 yards from the front line—it acted as the voice of the average soldier as it relayed his experiences, grief, and anger. Articles were written by soldiers during their limited free time while in dugouts, reserve lines, or on rest, and were paired with poetry and jokes as well as comical advertisements and music hall parodies. Recreated here in facsimile are every volume of The Times up through its last issue, released after the end of the war in December 1918. Sometimes irreverent and often hysterical, the humor and satire of these papers provide an excellent insight into life in the trenches during World War I.

I have read a very great deal about the 1st World War, many many personal accounts from ordinary Soldiers to Officers. I have read accounts from both sides of the lines, I have also read accounts about the Air War as well So when I obtained a copy of the 'Wipers Times' it was fascinating.
Reading through this you get a sense of how the guys were feeling, their outlook on life, the grim humour of the desperate times they were involved with. From that sense of perspective its a must have document to get a wider view on how things were in those dark dreadful days.

It should be an essential part of ones collection if you are studying these far off days.

Bought for my 91-year-old Mother. She found it fascinating. An easy read and full of interesting facts. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the First World War.

During WWI The soldiers in Cannon Wars were called Wipers because they serviced the cannons in battle and in peace. Their job was to keep the armaments clean and ready for service against the German enemy. They fought in the trenches and maintained their environment. Each issue of the Wipers Times was normally one page long and mimeographed to be sent to the troops in the trenches. There were some minor advertisements, entertainments and contained a takeoff of the Sherlock Holmes series by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, although the principal characters were not used, but were assumed to be in the series. Other short stories were included, and continued, when possible. Casualties were replaced in some of the stories, while others ceased to be mentioned.This title contains the collected sheets from that period, even though the titles change over the period of publication. This was limited entertainment for the troops in the trenches in the war, and was published sporadically during the war. Simple reading for a military staff constantly under enemy attack, and a casual reading source in combat. This title may be found in some Library collections, but this source seems to be complete. Casually recommended for the Sherlockian and WWI fan.
