The Great War (1914-1918) Forum

Recommended Posts

I spent 10 years researching over 350 men and women of my extended family from Canada, USA, Gt Britain, Australia and New Zealand, The result is a fairly comprehensive web site detailing their war experiences. I am making these page available to the members of the War Forum because its the members who helped me the most with my research. While the focus is on men and women with the surnames Blenco, Blencow, Blencowe, Blinco, Blenko, Blincoe , Blincow and Blinko it does contain many other men and women and in these pages details of the activities of the military units below which I hope may be useful to reserachers. Of course the information is subject to correction and I welcome any comments corrections and additions to my work, it is and always be a work in progress.
