Channel Islands 

Stop Press

A new website has been recently added to our Links menu for the UK. Titled ‘British Military Nurses’, it may help those site visitors who are looking to discover something of the nursing roles that their great-grandmother or great aunt undertook during the Great War. Additionally, this new website also contains a list of the various Hospitals that had existed in 1917, throughout the United Kingdom and the Channel Islands. The website is well worth visiting.

Recent Visits

September & October 2013 allowed visits to be made in South West England, France and Belgium.

July 2013 saw trips to Birmingham, Kidderminster and Plymouth reduce our UK list of Roll of Honour photograph requirements.

May and June 2013 saw visits to many more cemeteries and memorials in France & Belgium with Channel Islands connections.

Five Group members visited important sites and cemeteries in Belgium and France in October 2011. One result is that many more web pages and photographs have been added to the Jersey & Guernsey Rolls of Honour.

An additional trip in April 2012 to Flanders has resulted in most headstones in Belgium now being visited. A visit to the Meuse region, in October 2012, has added photographs for many Frenchmen with Channel Island connections.
