Apologies if this has already been posted although I can't seem to find it. Just finished watching Michael Portillo and Railways of the Great War which I found extremely interesting and enjoyable. If anyone is interested you can catch it here.

Also available on DVD. They advertised for material on the forum a while back, which I passed to a friend in Bristol, who as a consequence appears, talking about her grandfather's diaries.

These diaries were particularly interesting, thanks to you it seems.

Think there's quite a few stars of the show on here - I'm the chap in WW1 uniform on Episode 2 talking about the North Eastern Railway Battalion (17th Northumberland Fusiliers)

I am the bloke who started the series in Luxembourg. There is also an excellent book about the series (in some ways better than the series), written by Colette Hooper.

.......and I remarked at the time that the make up artists had done a great job with that handsome man in uniform connected to the NE Railway Battalion! :)
