Lives of the First World War is a site which aims to combine historical fact with an insight into the hearts and minds of those who served. Of particular interest are combatants like JR Ackerley and Siegfried Sassoon, whose pages seem to be pretty accurate, because – alas –  some of the ‘facts’ at this site are a bit dodgy, including getting Wilfred Owen’s middle names wrong.

As with any online resource, the information presented is only as good as that uploaded; even the Commonwealth War Graves site has the odd typographical error.  It’s always worth reporting these, as reputable sites are usually grateful to have such things flagged up and our LGBT ‘heroes’ deserve an accurate record to be kept.
