Remembering World War I

I've just come across this fascinating blog. Written by the grandson of Private Harry Lamin, a soldier who fought in the First World War, it's made up of transcripts of the letters which Harry sent home from the front, together with commentary by his grandson on Harry's life and the background to some of what he would have been experiencing at the time the letters were written. Each letter is being posted exactly 90 years after it was written.

The blog has been going for a while, so I've got some reading to do... can't stop and chat here.
