Sharing with you and sourced from a FB page and with permission. Two very young soldiers in the Kaisers Army. 1918. Look at the tunics. The right hand soldiers one is a good quality cloth. The left hand one wears a bluse of low quality wool with other “ersatz” fibre. Shoddy. More pic.twitter.com/vdgGILtkVo — Tim […]
John McCrae died at Wimereux #OTD in 1918. He wrote ‘In Flanders Fields’ near Ypres in 1915. “To you from failing hands we throw    The torch; be yours to hold it high.    If ye break faith with us who dieWe shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.” pic.twitter.com/OGZYshG9vC — Paul Reed (@sommecourt) January 28, 2021 […]

Austro-Hungarian P.A.1 (aka Junovicz Armored Car) on patrol. This photo's possibly from the Italy Front, where an armored car platoon, the 'K.u.K. Panzerautozug No.1', served in 1918. Of this unit's 5 cars, 2 were P.A.1s. pic.twitter.com/tq4OALX7KO — Nicolai Eberholst (Pike Grey 1914-1918) (@PikeGrey1418) January 17, 2021 RT @PikeGrey1418: Austro-Hungarian P.A.1 (aka Junovicz Armored Car) on […]
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.
