The Serving Soldier is the digital collections portal of the Liddell Hart Centre for Military Archives at King’s College London. Only a small number of digitized subcollections concerns the First World War. Among the subjects are aircraft, the expeditions to Gallipoli and the Dardanelles, documentation about the first tanks, and the journal of the German camp for British internees at Ruhleben. Sometimes you will find scores of photographs, for example a series of images of castles in the Middle East taken by T.E. Lawrence, British First World War posters, and four series of stereoscopic photographs (original twin sets with King’s College watermark; no animation). The range of materials and the choice of the other periods of war makes this portal interesting. At another website King’s College London presents a war memorial for the lives of students and staff killed in action, also of affiliated institutions.
