Good Morning by the Daily Mirror, England, May 1, 1943

The idea behind this newspaper/magazine was really sweet. Beginning in 1943 the Daily Mirror published Good Morning, a four page paper with photos (mostly of cute animals and pretty ladies), puzzles, comics, short stories, bits of news (lots of human interest stories) and sometimes even notes or interviews with pictures from family members at home, specifically for the Royal Navy Submarine Corps. They’d be bundled monthly before a trip and were numbered (instead of dated) so the men received them in order every day. It was one way to give the men, who were gone for weeks at a time, a sense of normality. Over 900 editions were published.
