WW1 American Troops heading home

 
American soliders returning home on the Agamemnon, Hoboken, New Jersey after WW1. I think there is room for one or two more soliders on deck :)

WW1 Centenary: 1914-2014


So we are here, the 100 year anniversary of World War One. It will be marked across the UK with a number of events. I found a very decent site here that gives information and calendar of them. I hope to have a number of WW1 themed posts over the year and give a real insight into life at the time.

WW1 Celebrations: 100 years on. Scots New Year & the end!



Next year (2014) will be the 100 year anniversary of WW1. I believe alot of events will be taking place across the globe for this particular event. 

The Black Watch (Scottish soldiers) celebrating New Year. Like most things in WW1 we have mud in this photo, lots and lots of it. I am not sure but it looks like a camp of some sort, most probably a little off the front line. They seemed rather happy, maybe there was a ceasefire that day!

1918: Crowds outside Buckingham Palace, London, celebrate the Armistice. The end of the War, huge numbers of people across the country joined parties and gatherings.

U.S. 27th Infantry Division; end of World War I. We can often forget that the War was in fact a global event. American troops here marching through New York to mark the end of the War.
