Photos of soldiers added to website
4:25pm Friday 7th March 2014 in News
GREAT War fallen tribute website Wiltshire Soldiers has uploaded 5,000 identified photographs of soldiers who died in or as a result of serving in the conflict.
The site was launched in 2010 and enables users to search for free for details of the Great War fallen from their local communitiesis.
It covers the county of Wiltshire from where 10,000 war dead can be searched for by name, war memorial, town, regiment or village.
The site’s founder Richard Broadhead said: “This is not just about the lists of names on war memorials, it is much much more; we include and provide details of men who are associated with the towns and villages and not just those who were born there.”
Plans are for the site to continue growing, the pace of which will be heavily dependent on the availability of funding, and Richard would like to hear from anyone who has information or a photo of service personnel who died as a result of the Great War to increase this single repository of information.
Richard said: “We will continue to commemorate these fallen and provide them with the fitting respect they deserve.”
