The Greyfriars Holiday Annual

The Holiday Annual was first published by Amalgamated Press in 1920 and was priced at a mighty six shillings, the equivalent of a years subscription to any one of the companion papers. It was a success and continued for 22 years, actually outliving the Magnet and Gem by a few months before becoming another victim of the wartime paper shortage.

Howard Baker reprinted seven of the original annuals (1920, 1925, 1927, 1928, 1935, 1940 and 1941).

You can find a complete contents listing of the Greyfriars Holiday Annual in the publications section of  The Greyfriars Index

"The Holiday Annual" by Roger Jenkins from the Story Paper Collector offers a brief description of each annual in turn including the contents and origin of the Hamilton stories within. You can read the article here. A more detailed article again by Roger Jenkins for the 1971 Collectors Digest annual can be found here.

A number of stories from the Holiday Annual have now been scanned. You can download them from the links in the table below.
