Gale Newspaper 'The Times' lookup please
« on: Sunday 23 November 08 11:39 GMT (UK) »
Is there any kind person who can lookup on the Gale Newspaper site  please, I would think there'll be quite a bit in The Times

I'm looking for any references to the 1928 Harvester's.  They were some 6,000 men who were shipped over to Canada in 1928 to help with the harvest and it was basically a disaster.  I'd never heard of it until I saw my Grandad on a ships passenger list with HARVESTERS written across the top of the page.  There is very little online I can find about it and I think newspapers are about the best source, so anything in the press would be most welcome.

I found an essay in a book called 'The Developing West' which I have bought and I've put out a request for a lookup on the Canadian newspaper site.

If it's possible to save an image of the article please pm me and I'll give my email address for it to be sent.

many thanks

Thanks Pauline but all I can find on that link is a free trial of 19th century newspapers, I'm after 20th century  :(

Searching for HARVESTERS in the Times Archive gives 110 hits for 1928 and 29 hits for 1929.

Is there anything in particular that you were looking for?

Thank you to everyone who has looked for me, fishweb (Cathy) has sent me some cuttings.

 I was particularly interested in the unrest amongst the Harvesters as they were promised certain things by the Government and then they didn't happen (some things never change huh?  ;))
