Welcome to visitors from the Great War Forum

You will notice that you have been magically transported out of the Great War Forum and are now in its partner site, The Long, Long Trail.

Experience says that many of the basic questions repeatedly asked on the Forum are already answered on this site - it is worth spending some time getting to know what is here.

Areas of particular interest for many Forum pals include the "Research a soldier" section, all about how to research a soldier of the British Army of 1914-1918.

Now back to the Forum!
