Operation War Diary is taking British Army regimental records and transcribing them. You can help.

The website, which I learned about from David Juliusson, for Operation War Diary: Reports from the Front can be found here.

The site notes:

“The story of the British Army on the Western Front during the First World War is waiting to be discovered in 1.5 million pages of unit war diaries. We need your help to reveal the stories of those who fought in the global conflict that shaped the world we live in today.”

The site adds: “Become a Citizen Historian and help Imperial War Museums and The National Archives reveal the story of the British Army on the Western Front during the First World War.”

David Juliusson notes: “What the project is doing is taking regimental records and transcribing them. It sounds like an interesting project.”

If you’d like to volunteer, the site has information about how to arrange to help out.
