Today's image. Another excellent aerial of Roeux, taken on 3 May 1917 – The Third Battle of the Scarpe – when the village and its infamous Chemical Works were attacked by 4th Division. Mount Pleasant Wood and the village cemetery can be seen. #Arras #WW1 #FWW pic.twitter.com/deAmn9gqsr — Jeremy Banning (@jbanningww1) April 4, 2021 RT […]

This Project
Charting the daily events of World War One, this history project aims to provide a bite-sized and engaging way to follow the events of 100 years ago. Using a variety of sources, I aim to refer to the main events of the war on the centenary of their occurrence. However, it's not just about the main events, I have also taken time to research lesser known events in order to help the reader to feel engaged with the scope of the war.
