World War 1 Witness

World War 1 Witness

A World War 1 Website which will combine all the scattered information available into one easily useable site.

Unfortunately, this project was not successful

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.

Thank you.
