Thanks to Tom Morgan's tip-off (see here: http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/i...igital+archive) about the month's free access to the Times Digital Archive, I've discovered a wonderful little thing that many of you might like to grab before it's too late - full HRH Queen Mary's Prisoner of War lists (mostly from 1919) for loads of regiments.

Go to Thomson and Gale - http://www.gale.com/

Click on the blue box marked National Library Week

Choose 'Others'

Choose 'History, Biography and Literature'

Choose 'Women, War and Society'

Click on 'Women, War & Society, 1914-1918'

In the search type in 'princess mary's fund'

Scroll through and enjoy.....

Although it's tedious, your best bet is to save the images on to your hard drive. I've snaffled about 50 pages worth of Sherwood Foresters.

Thanks Andrew - great collection to look through. I should be writing an essay on the Versailles Settlement but this looks far more interesting :huh:
