A new website has been recently added to our Links menu for the UK. Titled ‘British Military Nurses’, it may help those site visitors who are looking to discover something of the nursing roles that their great-grandmother or great aunt undertook during the Great War. Additionally, this new website also contains a list of the various Hospitals that had existed in 1917, throughout the United Kingdom and the Channel Islands. The website is well worth visiting.


Recent Visits

All the remaining British, and some French, graves on the Western Front have now been visited and photographed following a visit in June 2014. More UK men also have had photographs added to our Rolls of Honour.

Spring 2013 has added some of the few remaining UK headstone photographs to be added to our Rolls of Honour
