Mike Kipling’s October  Newsletter gives details of our forthcoming  meetings, and includes  the next part of the extended article by Tonie and Valmai Holt on  “Coincidences in the careers of Kipling and Bruce Bairnfather”  (left), the young officer  whose cartoons from the Great War trenches made him famous.

Mike also reports on his researches into RK’s lesser known Yorkshir uncles, and on some extracts from the Civil and Military Gazette, the Lahore newspaper for which Kipling worked for five years from the age of sixteen.
