I was interested to find this today as I was looking around the WWW.
I would be interested in your views to see what you think so can you take a look & let me know what you think please?

What a wonderful idea, I really love the concept of creating in depth biographies of the men and women of WW1, so much more powerful than seeing names on memorials.

Thanks for the link.

It's a brilliant idea for keeping the memories of what happened nearly 100 years ago and to never forget the men and women who gave their lives to keep us free...

Having read quite a few biographies about the lads and Nurses,

Can't wait for it to go digital.

Thanks for the link.
