    Hello Charlotte, It was good to talk to you earlier and I really appreciate you doing this and hopefully it will work for other people we want to add too. We will add the stories as external references as you suggest.
    LOTFWW is a great project but also an enourmous one to manage so we really appreciate your help down to this level. Kind regards, Kirsten

    Hello Kristen, I am not sure what you need as a "direct link" the parish magazine is a hard copy publication held by the church and Charing and District Local History Society. The Kentish Express newspaper I am checking with colleagues to see whether the data was from an online version or taken from reading through the hard copy of the local paper.
