One of the rarest documents I will ever handle. Until now no original design blueprint of a Mark I tank was known to exist. Alongside the patent specification, the “birth certificate” of the tank, it will be offered for sale at The Temple Auction Rooms next month. #tank pic.twitter.com/1HgtUdTosz — Paul Laidlaw (@ThePaulLaidlaw) January 21, […]

Chiselbury Camp & some of the Fovant Badges, #Wiltshire. Most badges were cut by troops stationed nearby during the #FWW; efforts were made to obscure them in the Second, before restoration & the addition of more afterwards.

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.
