Been great to be out guiding on the Somme today. Started off with a visit to the Lochnagar mine crater at La Boiselle. We talk about it a lot, but this must have been one hell of a bang!

Palace, Manchester on the eve of #WW1 Can't walk by today without imagining it packed during @WW1TheGreatWar when, dressed as a 'Tommy', 'Britain's greatest recruiting officer' Vesta Tilley (born 13.5.1864) would entice lads to join her on stage and sign up.@TheHistoryPress pic.twitter.com/SWAaE9gKCE — Roger Foss (@fossroger) May 13, 2019 RT @fossroger: Palace, Manchester on the […]

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.
