Dr. Susan Drain announces the launch of her sabbatical project, the editing and online publication of an archive of primary materials relating to the World War I Canadian Artillery soldier, Percy Theobald.
The archive consists of diaries, letters, photographs, documents and ephemera, and is being published in real time plus one hundred years. Thus the first formal post was January 31, 2016, the hundredth anniversary of Theobald’s enlistment.
This chronicle of the boredom of military training and the horror of active service is liberally seasoned with romance and poetry — something for everyone!
