Blogging World War One

Seriously !

The letters of Private Harry Lamin, who fought in the First World War, are being posted onto a blog by his grandson, with each blog entry posted 90 years later than the actual day it was penned.
What a wonderful tribute to a brave man !

Utterly gripping stuff.

My great grandfather fought in and survived WWI, and I will enjoy reading this blog as it unfolds.

Did you hear this on the BBC as I did? :)

Hi Ian.
I read it on the Daily Telegrpah newspaper site.

It seems to have really captured people's imagination, which is wonderful.

These soldiers went through Hell; it would be a shame for their heroism and sacrifices to be forgotten by future generations.
