Re: Hundreds of nespaper clippings of ww1 Soldiers/sailors
Someone has been working overtime with that compilation. I would not knock all the effort that has been put in to gather newspapers of the period and cut all those photos out. However, it would have been better still if the newspaper had been identified and surnames in chronological order. 198 pages is a lot to go through and there must be many more photos to find in some obscure newspapers.
When I was curator of the York & Lancaster Regimental Museum, I set about creating a Roll of Honour for all those Rotherham servicemen who died in WW2. That was also a labour of love but not on the massive scale of trying to compile ALL newspaper casualty photos for WW1. My efforts were coordinated into a beautiful memorial book now preserved in Rotherham Parish Church.
