Been some recent posts regarding French képis of the #FWW period in which certain parts of them have been mentioned. I realise that some may not be familiar with the phraseology, so here're some diagrams (officer's & OR's) to assist in illustrating the terms for the various bits: pic.twitter.com/PXKp5nxsSm — DOM (@croonaert) April 29, 2021 […]

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.
