The Main Site
« on: November 29, 2007, 12:10:22 PM »
I know a lot of people come direct to the forum without realising there's a another side to our site

www.themanchesters.org

It's still being built and probably will never be finished, in that we'll always be adding to it

The backbone is the battalion histories, the are available from the battalion index page

http://www.themanchesters.org/batt%20index.htm

I have tried to vary the way we tell the histories by getting different people to write them and in some cases we have them written by the soldiers in a diary format. Included within the battalion histories are many stories of the soldiers themselves from the viewpoint of their family and friends.

what else?  we :-

Badge photos
Medal rolls
Photos and postcards
Regimental history
Great War articles on recruitment and numbering
Divisional history
POW database
War Graves Project

and much more  ;)
