Great news everyone! The Zooniverse has teamed up with the Imperial War Museum and the National Archives to bring you an awesome new project called Operation War Diary. It involves the transcription of over one million battlefield notes produced from the western front during the World War I. This year marks the centenary of the start of the war and this project will bring to light information that had been all but lost over the last one hundred years. Get involved here http://www.operationwardiary.org/
You can read more about the project in this blog post, and you can follow it on Facebook and Twitter too!

Good luck with this exciting project. I look froward to contributing when the Pals records are digitised.
Marvellous idea but although I’ve registered and logged in it won’t let me do anything! Any reason why?
