Forgotten heroes of the First World War

English Heritage has an interesting online article on the multiracial Labour Corps of WW1

What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

Thanks Will,

I remember reading about the SS Mendi on the BBC web site this time last year as it was the centenary. Not a particularly proud moment in our history.

Cheers, Andy
