Available to search now, these rare records are archive gems for those researching their family history. Search this collection to uncover stories of the battle to keep servicemen and women fighting fit in the First World War. READ MORE HERE:
OUT NOW - the Summer issue of our regular Forces War Records magazine - 'Journal' (we hope you like the refreshed look), and we've created a NEW magazine for you - 'Heredity', it's especially for all you genealogy buffs and includes a useful 'Family Relationship Chart'.
The Unknown Warrior is a powerful symbol that embodies a host of contradictions. He is an ordinary soldier, but one who has been given a place of extraordinary honour; he has no name, yet every family whose relative never returned from the Great War feels that he belongs to them; he represents the losses and horror of war, but also the glory of dying for King and Country; and finally, he is doomed to remain ‘unknown’ for all of time, yet is famous around the world.
