Recording our WWI survivors
I am undertaking a project to gather the service details of everyone who returned home alive from World War I in time for the centenary of the war in 2014.
I have carried out research and discovered there is no comprehensive list of the estimated 100,000-150,000 who returned to Ireland following the war.
My interest came about from my grand aunt who volunteered in the war and returned home.
I would be grateful if any of your readers who may know such persons to send us their service details to email@example.com or to the post box below. Visit www.thereturnedww1.com for further details of the project.
