From the day that Neville Chamberlain declared war on Germany. Only British and American newspapers please. It is for a movie that I am making, and they'd have to be over the size of 640x480. It HAS to be headlines that are CLEARLY visible, that is, with large print.

I'd need at least 3-4 different front pages.

ANY HELP AT ALL IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Thanks once more.

You know, something like

EUROPE AT WAR!

or

GREAT BRITAIN AND FRANCE DECLARE WAR ON GERMANY!

How quick do you need it mate? I will try to get some scans for you this weekend as I have a lot of repo newspapers from WW2. Do you need anything else like maps or ration cards/stuff?

Do you have a good university, college, ect... near by. They will have newspapers on file that you can view. They should have newspapers going way back. Not sure what format. Probably cd.

I'd be VERY interested in getting WWII headline papers with articles/headlines about Malta.

Actually, if you'd have anything where it says something about the tanker "Ohio" that "saved Malta", severly damaged by torpedoe(s) I'd be very interested too!

Should have them scanned for Wednesday night (England time). I've had to de-louse the computer due to a new trojan horse program that I got!

Remember kids, never look at naked ladies on the net! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Edit: I think that I may have something about the `Ohio` tanker. I see what I can find.

One thing that I have forgot is that my P.C. now has no port for the old scanner that I've got http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif . If any of you chaps want to P.M me your email address then I can scan the newspapers at work and email you the scans. Anyway, The scans WILL be up tomorrow!

Okay, tomorrow I will upload the start of the war newspapers, and also photos of the Ohio tanker and Malta newspaper front page. Anything else anyone may want then please ask and I will see what I can do.
