Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - BEST WEBSITES -

This is a won­der­ful free web re­source, specif­i­cally de­signed for fam­ily his­to­ri­ans re­search­ing mem­bers of the Bri­tish Army dur­ing the First World War. It has use­ful ad­vice pages cov­er­ing all aspects of re­search­ing an in­di­vid­ual’s ser­vice his­tory, plus de­tailed unit his­to­ries from cavalry reg­i­ments to the Labour Corps. Plus there are sec­tions cov­er­ing the­atres of war: from France to Pales­tine, and Me­sopotamia to Salonika. The ‘Egypt and Pales­tine’ page lists the forces that made up the Egypt Ex­pe­di­tionary Force, and we im­me­di­ately learn that the 42nd ( East Lan­cashire) Divi­sion, for ex­am­ple, ar­rived in Septem­ber 1914 and left in Fe­bru­ary 1917.
