As part of this project, people have been exploring histories which are new to them. In addition to the research taking place to support our main activities, we are collecting material from local and family historians. This section of the website is where these histories can be held and presented. Please contact us if you would like us to add a link to your own ‘Away from the Western Front’ story, or to put it online here.
All over the world people have been researching the stories of individual soldiers. Find out more here.

Women played an active part in the war away from the Western Front, especially as nurses but also in other support roles. We highlight some of their stories here.
