Biographical / Historical

The Imp: the journal of the Junior Imperial & Constitutional League was first published in 1925, although no copies survive before 1927. It was originally published in a 16-page quarto format [according to article 'Impact's Ancestry' by Geoffrey Block, CRD, in Impact, Autumn 1964, p.9] but up to and including April 1928 it was in fact 20 pages before dropping to 16.

The Imp featured news and letters from local Junior Imperial League branches around the country, as well as reports on current affairs and reports of meetings of the League's Central Council and Annual Conference, including regular columns 'The Way of the World' and 'Powder and Shot - facts and arguments on political, social and economic questions'.

A slightly smaller and re-designed new series of The Imp began in August 1927, but the numbering remained the same and there was negligible change otherwise.

[Although The Imp: the Journal of the Junior Imperial & Constitutional League was first published in May 1925, no copies survive in the Conservative Party Archive prior to Apr 1927].
