A couple of points worth mentioning that are worth bearing in mind as you navigate around this website.
Can I search for specific dates?
I try to record all dates in the same format, that is day month year, in full. So if you are searching for the action at Arras where the 10th Battalion lost 60% of their fighting strength, enter the known date “11th April 1917” (including the quotation marks “—-“) in the search facility above the right-hand sidebar. All posts featuring that exact date will be returned.
Why are some Battalions well represented, while others don’t have much information at all?
At the moment my main focus is the 10th Battalion, inevitably most of the soldiers I am currently researching are from this Battalion. Once I have done as much as I can with the 10th, I will move on to another. I will still be adding non-10th soldiers fairly often though as I come across them.
I have information about a soldier of the Loyal North Lancs
If you have anything about a soldier from the Regiment, I would be very grateful if you could send it to me for inclusion on the website. Thank you very much.
Some soldiers appear in more than one category
Many soldiers were transferred between several battalions of the Regiment during this time of War. If a soldier saw service in two or more battalions he will appear in multiple sections.
Do I have to register to comment on your articles?
No, there is no need to register… however, to prevent spam, all comments are approved before they appear live on the website.
Why is each day of the 10 Bn War Diary written as separate articles?
I write another day every day. I started this project exactly 97 years after the Battalion departed for France. So if you are reading this on 22nd September 2012, today’s article will be a transcription of events on 22nd September 1915. – This section has now been suspended (Feb 13)
Is every soldier fully researched?
Not exactly, as I am documenting several thousand individuals I will invariably miss some information. I may revisit soldiers from time to time as more information is found.
Where do we get the information from?
A variety of places, but more often that not originating from the National Archives; it is published and shared under the open government licence. A great deal of information has also been reproduced from other online sources – always by kind permission of the website owner.
Can I copy your information?
No, not without our permission, or the permission of the original owner of the content. We actively protect our content and forbid any use without our prior permission. A polite email explaining how and why you want to copy our work will more than likely get our permission – but, we will take action against all those who steal it.
Can I get notified when new posts are added?
Indeed, as of 26th December 2012 I have set up the facility to read new posts in a variety of ways, including via our rss feed. We also now have a facebook page, and twitter account so you can see our new posts whilst surfing your regular social hangouts!
