First and foremost, this site is dedicated to the memory of the men and women of Dorset, who fought and served during the Great War 1914 – 1918. In time, I would like to cover all of the local war memorials for the period, located in Dorset.
My name is Elliot Metcalfe and I set this site up back in 2014 as a personal project. At the time, I was undertaking a web design course at a local university, and thought that this site commemorating my county would be a worthwhile project with my newly learnt skills. For more information on me, please visit my personal blog, where I regularly post on military history – www.metcalfemilitaryhistory.co.uk
As previously mentioned, this is a personal project, run only by myself so please be patient if you have any queries, I will reply as soon as I am able to do so.
For more information on casualties of the Great War, please visit the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) site.
