I have studied the Great War for many years. Over the past few years I have concentrated on the Ypres Salient which was probably the worst place on the whole front.  I decided  to begin a website as a tribute to all the men who served on the salient.  It also seemed that many people wanted help on Great War matters. My website grew from this.  I aim to visit and take photographs of all the Ypres Salient cemeteries and also add information which may help others.  I also decided on writing a book on 9th (Service) Battalion The Sherwood Foresters.  A number of Lincs men served with the 9th.  They also trained at Belton before going to Gallipoli. I am therefore in the process of taking photos of the graves of all 9th Bn as well.
I am always happy to help people and take photos of graves whilst visiting the area.Great War Ypres Salient - Website address:  
Ed:  Thanks for that contribution Steve.  The website is very good and informative also easy to navigate.  Take a look I'm sure you will find it useful if you are researching the GREAT WAR.
Also on Ancestor Gateway Forum look under GREAT WAR GATEWAY and post your entries to that section please.
