Biographical / Historical

The specimen copy demonstrating the new octavo format The Imp, 1932, states: ' The Imp originally was first published in May, 1925, but prior to that the League had a journal which was entitled The Junior Imperial League Gazette. The succeeding papers have increased in size – now we are reverting to a smaller paper – one that can be easily read, and which, at the same time, will keep our members informed of general League activities.' It was published monthly from October 1932.

The new publication featured similar content to the previous incarnation of The Imp, and regular columns included 'The Editor's Post-Bag', 'League News' and 'Powder and Shot'. It began with 8 pages, but increased to 12 from May 1933.

The Nov 1936 (No. 2, Vol. 5) issue was the last issue of The Imp, and stated that a new title was being sought for a new paper which would be produced from January 1937: 'This will close the series which commenced in October 1932. Previous to that date we had a sixteen page 'Imp' of quarto size, the first number of which appeared in May 1925. Now again we revert to a sixteen page paper, and it is hoped that the Publications and Finance Committees will receive a fitting reward for their labour and enterprise by a good sale and a steadily increasing circulation.'
