Track the movements of your WW1 army ancestor through battles such as the Somme, see where his unit moved to and listen to what happened at each location.
To commemorate all those who bought on the battlefields of the Somme we take a look at shell shock and how it affected those who would have fought, and survived the bloodiest battle in WW1 and in British History
Somme piper for McCrae's Battalion has been honoured to 'right a wrong', almost 90 years after he was buried in an unmarked grave.
Clever Digit Media representative handed over a cheque for £2,000 to John Laity and Lt Col (Retd) James Harris, the Co-Founders of charity Flying for Freedom, outside their microlight hanger at RAF Kemble.
Forces War Records and our sister site Forces Reunited are supporting the company with a donation that will give under privileged children the chance to attend the show and see for themselves what life would have been like during WW1.
The Who Do You Think You Are? Live show is over for another year, and it was a great success!

Known as Hitler’s Black Book and listing ‘enemies of the state, traitors and undesirables, marked for punishment or death’, it has been painstakingly translated from the original German by Forces War Records’ excellent researchers. It documents 2,820 of the Reich’s ‘most wanted’ people in Britain, for targeting following invasion. There are many notables within the collection: probable and improbable politicians, intelligentsia, even entertainers.
A dog is calming, comforting, perceptive and selfless. What better possible aid, then, for a soldier with PTSD? Our sister site Forces Reunited has donated £6,000 to Veterans with Dogs to buy and sponsor the training of a puppy who will help to give a distressed veteran a new lease of life.
