Serving Soldier

Serving Soldier is a new online collection drawing on the holdings of the Liddell Hart Centre for Military Archives at Kings College London, and concentrating on the lives of British soldiers from the 1880s to the outbreak of the Second World War. New material is still being added to the site, but what’s there already looks useful and interesting, including letters home from a young Alan Brooke about his life as a junior officer in India, a good quality selection of British First World War posters, and much ephemera relating to life in and out of barracks at the start of the twentieth century.

    It’s a great idea; they’ve got a marvellous collection there. But I wish the site had an RSS feed or some other way of keeping tabs on updates.

    BTW the link in the post is mangled.

    Weirdly, the link looks fine in html, wordpress seems to be mangling it no matter how I put it in.
    It’s http://www.kcl.ac.uk/iss/archives/servingsoldier if anyone else is interested, will find time later to fix it fully.
    Brett – let’s email them and ask.
