We’ve recently been contacted by a blog reader who let us know about a wonderful website his son has created charting the war of John Locke from Thetford:
The website creator (and John’s great-grandson) says
The website features a transcript of the war diary of Jack Lock, a soldier who fought in World War One with the 4th Battalion Norfolk Regiment. The diary covers his time during the Gallipoli Campaign and he records, in vivid detail, his first experiences of war during that chaotic conflict. The site also features scans of the diary, a biography and several photographs.
As a team we’ve spent hours reading through this treasure and we hope that you all enjoy it too!
If you have a similar project or family story to tell please do drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our very best to feature it here!
