I work for a television production company and we are in the early stages of planning programme or series of programmes to mark the centenary of The Great War. We want to relate the experiences of the soldiers that went to war - their lives prior to going to the front and their lives in battle - to the lives of people born 100 years after them.
For this project we are searching for diaries, letters, photographs or any other contemporary material which will give us an insight into the lives of those who went off to war. If you have any such items and are willing to let us borrow them please do get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
All materials will be treated with the respect they deserve and will be returned as soon as possible.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post and I hope to hear from some of you soon.
