Hello. My name is Richard McKenzie and I have a dream. A dream that one day all the scattered information concerning the British armed forces on the Western Front in World War 1 will be brought together in one, easy to use, website. This is a mammoth project, hence the amount I have asked. As an archivist with a regimental museum in Scotland I am well aware how complicated it can be to find information concerning your family members, or the units they fought with.
The website I am proposing will contain all this information and more. It will provide the history and names of every British unit, Regular Army, Territorial and New Army; Medals awarded from VC to Military Medal; The history of the British Expeditionary Force; and much much more. I am reckoning on two years of work at least, but when it is finished the country will have the most comprehensive information source for the British Army on the Western Front.
