The situation at the time of WW1 meant that diligent and comprehensive record-keeping could often not occur.
Our WW1 Project researches the stories of soldiers as best we can.
Our Soldier stories describing the soldier's lives before, during and after the war, to paint a picture of what it must have been like to go through the experience of WW1.
