IWM: Lives of the First World War

Lives of the First World War will bring material from museums, libraries, archives and family collections from across the world together in one place. IWM needs your help to explore those documents, to link them together and to start telling the stories of those who served in uniform and worked on the home front.

Since its foundation in 1917, IWM has continued to ensure that people understand the impact of this global conflict and how it shaped the world we live in today. By the end of the centenary we will have built a permanent digital memorial to more than 8 million men and women from across Britain and the Commonwealth and saved their stories for future generations.
