This blog is where we write about what is happening here at the Memorial. Topics will cover the exhibitions we are working on and what we are doing with items in our collections. There will be stories about people, places, events and objects, or reports from battlefield tours.

The blog is written by staff from across the Memorial, which is why you will find a broad range of topics here. The views expressed in the blog are those of the authors, and do not necessarily reflect the view of the Memorial.

We hope you will stay and explore, and join in the conversation.


We welcome your comments on the posts in our blog. We particularly like comments which are directly relevant to the topic of the post.

We do review the comments, and will delete any that we judge to be inappropriate. The grounds for deletion include profanity and personal attacks, as well as comments that are libelous or defamatory, or are irrelevant to the discussion, or merely spam. We reserve the right to publish, edit, or remove any comments posted on this blog.


When you register to post a comment, we will not use the email address you provide us unless you ask us to do so. We will not pass your email address on to a third party. Please read our Privacy Policy for more information.
