Are you interested in West Brookfield World War I and World War II Servicemen?

   Recently I received some war time scrapbooks full of newspaper clippings.  Included are articles about local servicemen (some with photos), and also activities of local organizations in support of the troops, and the war effort.  There a some articles about war time rationing, and some recipes, as well.  There are handwritten dates on some of the articles, but the newspaper they came from was not identified (probably Spencer Leader and/or the Worcester Telegram.)
   I hope to share the information contained in these scrapbooks in future blog posts; but in the meantime, I will be happy to answer requests for lookups.  Please leave a comment requesting information about a particular soldier of interest, or fill out the Information Request Form available by clicking on the tab above.
