War Diaries Talk

Other Fronts?

  • HebesDad by HebesDad

    Just a question bout the scale of the project - is the intention to go through all available war diaries regardless of the front, or is it just the western front.

    I expect many people are keeping an eye out for relatives regiments, and my Grandfathers went to India/NWF/Afghan, and I'd love to work on those if they come up

    Hi, the scope of the project is infantry diaries from the Western Front, which is about 1.5 million pages. To give a sense of scale, the 200 diaries that have been uploaded so far are around 40,000 pages, of which about 20,000 were tagged in the first week.
