Soldiers in the News

More and more pages from British newspapers are now appearing online as part of the British Newspaper Archive. Long-overlooked as a research tool, it's now easier than ever to search hundreds of periodicals at the click of a mouse.  I've been a subscriber for a long while and now I've just joined the British Newspaper Archive's affiliate programme.  The BNA website says that 7,390,497 pages have already been scanned, and by the time I finish this post the total will probably be 7,390,498. There are already a lot of First World War era pages online and you can bet that there will be plenty more added in time for the onslaught of centenary memorial programmes. If you've not already visited the BNA, you can do so right now by clicking on the link above.
