Website of the day: Every Man Remembered
With the anniversary of its dramatic beginnings last week, we’ve already covered a couple of sites to do with remembering the First World War. We offer no apologies for covering another one today, because this is an extraordinary undertaking.
At everymanremembered.org, the Royal British Legion is working towards keeping alive the memory of every single person who died serving their country in that horrific chapter of recent human history.
Working with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, they’re inviting people to commemorate somebody they knew or were related to.
Even if you don’t have a personal connection to one of the fallen, you can still get involved. By using the online database you can choose somebody to commemorate, based on your name or perhaps where you’re from.
This is another great way to keep the memory of the millions who died alive for another generation and a grimly fascinating way to see the global effect of the conflict.
