WWI

The Firing Line Museum Curator was thrilled to attend a meeting of Cymru WWI, who have been digitising Welsh Library collections relating to Wales during the First World War.

Thousands of newspapers and archival collections have been catalogued to be made available to the public during the First World War Centenary 2014-2018.

Representatives of the Cardiff WWI Steering Group stad down with members of Cymru WWI to discuss projects being prepared for this Centenary period, with a great deal of discussion and ideas sharing taking place.

The Cymru WWI blog can be found at http://cymruww1.llgc.org.uk/tag/cymruww1/ and promises to bring to the surface a treasure chest of sources from around Wales.

The WWI Centenary promises to be a wonderful period….a time for remembrance and commemoration for all that Wales did during this period in history.

Lest We Forget
