MC:P2/5/1N/13 winter 1948
Cutting from an unnamed Banbury newspaper reporting on a speech given by Dodds-Parker at Banbury Town Hall. The cutting is dated to 1948, and there is an advertisement for Christmas on the back, so it must date from November or December that year.

Cutting from the Banbury Guardian reporting on a speech given by Dodds-Parker at Banbury Town Hall. The cutting is dated to 1950 by Dodds-Parker, but on the back of it is an advertisement for Christmas 1949, so it must date from late in the previous year.

Cutting from the Banbury Advertiser reporting on a speech given by Dodds-Parker at Banbury Town Hall. The cutting is dated to 1950 by Dodds-Parker, and on the back of it a report of funds raised for that year’s Poppy Day Fund, so it presumably dates from just after 11 November.
