When Captain Fred Roberts discovered a printing press in the ruins of Ypres, Belgium in 1916, he decided to publish a satirical magazine called The Wipers Times - "Wipers" being army slang for Ypres. Full of gallows humour, The Wipers Times was poignant, subversive and very funny. Produced literally under enemy fire and defying both authority and gas attacks, the magazine proved a huge success with the troops on the western front. It was, above all, a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming adversity. In his spare time, Roberts also managed to win the Military Cross for gallantry.The Wipers Times featuring Ben Chaplin and Julian Rhind-Tutt is streaming with subscription on Prime Video, free on Tubi, streaming with subscription on Acorn TV (Via Prime Video), and 3 others. It's a comedy and drama movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 7.1 (1,101 votes) and was well received by critics.
