This year signals the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. To mark this globally important anniversary, the British National Archives is running First World War 100, which includes a broad program of activities and events.
Starting this week the National Archives is launching two of their most exciting initiatives: the online release of the first batch of digitised unit war diaries, and Operation War Diary, an innovative crowd sourcing project aimed at tagging the data from the diaries.
