World War One: Armed Forces


The British Army during World War I was fought by units which were made up exclusively of volunteers—as opposed to conscripts—at the beginning of the conflict.

Because of the numbers involved this project is one of a number of projects where GENi profiles of World War One soldiers can be added.

This project aims to honour the Welsh who fought and/or died during or as a consequence the war. Please assist by linking the GENi profiles of Welsh armed forces to this project

Please link profiles to this project AND to World War One: United Kingdom & Ireland HQ which is where we are recording progress.
