Christmas Advent Calendar from the Front: 1 December

I hope that your preparations are going well for Christmas 2014.  There always seems to be so much to do and so much preparation in the run-up to the “Big Day”. Reading blogs and carrying out any form of historical research is probably the last thing on most people’s minds!

So, to help ease your mood, each day from now until Christmas, my blog will be publishing images from postcards sent during the First World War. Click on the picture to be taken to an external website which will be of interest to historians of English history or local history or family history. Each day, the link will take you to a different website and, hopefully, help you discover resources or blogs new to you.  Just like a traditional advent calendar, you’ll not know what you’ve got until you’ve opened (or clicked) the door.

My Advent Calendar is my Christmas gift to you. Happy Christmas!
