A new CD now available from The Archive CD Books Project:
The National Roll of the Great War 1914-18 - London.
An excellent book with details of all of the people from London who
served in the Great War. Not just soldiers, but also those with other
>From the book introduction:
"When we quietly consider what the Great War, with its gains and losses,
its cares and anxieties, has taught us, we are at once struck by the
splendid heroism of all who took part in it. Many by reason of special
qualities of mind or soul stand out more prominently than the rest; but
the names and deeds of others, who toiled no less meritoriously, are
often left unsung.
Yet it is well, if only for purely personal and family reasons, that
there should be some abiding record of the self-sacrificing services of
all men and women who answered their Country's call in her hour of need,
and who, whether on land or sea, or in the air, in hospital, or camp, or
workshop, were ready to lay down life itself, if need be, that Britain
might live and Right prevail over Might.
It is for this reason primarily that the present "National Roll of the
Great War" was projected. In these pages will be found records of
devotion and patriotism of which the individual, the family, and the
nation have every reason to be proud."
The Archive CD Books Project exists to make reproductions of old books,
documents and maps available on CD to genealogists and historians, and
to co-operate with libraries, museums and record offices in providing
money to renovate old books in their collections.
Some of these books have been kindly lent to the project by various
individuals, some from County Record Offices, museums, family history
societies and libraries, and some which we have purchased. All of them
are old and rare. Many of those books purchased from book dealers (no
matter how expensive they were) are subsequently given away to one of
the above organisations.
