This week’s ‘Salute the Soldier’ campaign drive, dubbed: ‘Exmouth’s Greatest Week’, has so far seen the town raise close to £115,000. This falls quite short by more than £30,000 of the target set, but: ‘STILL, UP, EXMOUTH! A STRONG PULL AND A STOUT PULL TO GET THAT £150,000.’

Every Thursday we bring you clippings taken from the Exmouth Journal printed on this week in 1944.
