New Zealand and the - GREAT WAR - A site run by Peter Hoar. He says "One of my interests is World War I and this site is about New Zealand's involvement in that conflict. I am not at all interested in militaria (guns, badges etc) and I am certainly not a militarist. My concerns are with the social and cultural effects of the war. This site is intended to be something of a cross between a memorial and a museum and I hope the information on it will be of use and interest to those who share my fascination with the Great War."

BRITAIN - WORLD WAR ONE: Families of British and Commonwealth soldiers who fought in the First World War will be able to trace their relatives' war records through a website launched November 8, 2004. The NATIONAL ARCHIVES site lists the records of more than five million men and women of the army and Royal Flying Corps who won service medals during the war. Members of the Royal Navy are not included. Anyone who served in the war received at least one campaign medal. Officials said the website index provided the most comprehensive list of First World War military service. National Archives military historian William Spencer said medal records were useful for family history research, often providing the only account of a soldier's wartime service as many other records were destroyed by bombing during the Second World War. Searching the index is free.
