Volunteer opportunity for First World War project

We will soon start to digitise the WO 95 record series, which consists of unit war diaries from the First World War. The series is one of the most requested in our reading rooms in Kew, and digitising it means that we will be able to make the diaries more accessible by publishing them online. The series is extremely fragile, largely due to its age and popularity, so we will carry out essential conservation work while we digitise it. Our war diaries research guide explains the importance of these records for researchers. for more click here
