First World War Commemoration
Centenary of World War One
Soldiers at Biscot [Z1306/75/16/14]
To commemorate the centenary of the First World War, Bedfordshire Archives & Records Service told the story of the people of Bedfordshire during the First World War through two online blogs.
Bedfordshire At War: From the Frontline www.bedsatwar.blogspot.com focused on the war itself, with daily reports from the Front in the style of a modern war correspondent. It included a daily roll of honour naming all the officers and men of the Bedfordshire Regiment and Bedfordshire Yeomanry listed as killed on that date.
Bedfordshire At War: The Homefront www.bedshomefront.blogspot.com looked at individuals and events across the county of Bedfordshire, with newspaper style reports illustrated where possible by contemporary photographs.
