This project does not glorify the First World War or the British Empire and though these are my relatives, I don't share their opinions of 100 years ago.
This project makes some first person voices accessible and reminds us WW1 was fought not only by Tommies in France but at sea and by colonial troops including one and half million men from pre-partition India on the Western Front and in the Middle East.
TalksI do talks on the letters themselves and on the Indian Army in the First World War. Please contact me for details.
