Find a Soldier

I wrote yesterday about the five-year labour of love that has been my book, The Glorious Dead.

I also wrote of the imminent closure of the crowdfunding list, whereby subscribers (or pre-orderers!) get their name in the back of the book (and the book itself, of course) for the price of a pledge.

But they can also get much, much more.

One of the pledge levels uses some of the knowledge and skills I've gained in five years of research to offer my services 'finding a soldier': that is, researching the life, service and final resting place of someone, perhaps a family member, who served and died in the Great War.

Nearly all of us have some personal, family connection to World War One. And lots of people want to find out as much as they can about people they know - relatives, friends, others - who served. But it can be difficult to know where to look, how to search, what questions to ask.

Which is where I come in.

For a small extra sum I can look into this for you. One of the rewards for pledging for The Glorious Dead is to use what I've learnt to help you track down as much as possible about a someone who served, and died, in the Great War.

The details, if you're interested, are below. And you can make your pledge by clicking here.

But hurry! If you want to pledge you have to do so before midnight on July 1st 2018. That's when the book 'goes to press'.
