Jersey Forum, Number 3

This is the third issue, but the first named Jersey Forum, with another cover drawing by Edmund Blampied and internal drawings to an anonymously authored story called July Morning about a Mr Le Vendeur, who buys and sells in these hard times (see below). I can't find out why the name of the magazine was changed, but it might have been as a result of a decision to broaden the remit of articles, make it less specialised, and attract more readers. There was very little opportunity for theatre during the German Occupation of the Island. Perhaps the editor had immitated the Guernsey magazine, just to get it started.
