Military history is often a proud and poignant area of our family ancestry. Most of us will never experience or be able to comprehend the sacrifice of our ancestors but by tracing their history through military records, journals and reports we can walk in their footsteps and relive the experiences of those who lived, fought and often died in “The Great War”.

August 1914 was a momentous month in world history as it heralded the start of “The Great War” – the war to end all wars.

With 2014 being the centenary of the start of the war never has interest in the war been so great as it is now. Many of us know very little of the roles our relatives played and the experiences they endured during these dark days in our military history. For many of those who fought and died in the fields of France and Flanders during 1914-1918 their final resting place is in the many military cemeteries and memorials often unbeknown to their families.
