I have been extensively researching the life & military service of my paternal great-grandfather Thomas Mackey for over 6 years now. He fought in most of the major battles that the ANZACs were involved with on the Western Front during The Great War, and as such, have uncovered a wealth of information about his life, and learned countless new things about The Great War along the way.
I would love to be involved in this project, and fly the great war badge on my profile in honour of him and everyone involved in one of the bloodiest and gruesome wars our race has ever encountered.
I have spent a great deal of time on my g-grandfather's movements during his tour of France, and his profile on WikiTree is starting to come together nicely. If anyone has any suggestions I'd be happy to hear them!
Best Regards, Tim Mackey
Hello! I would like to join the Great War Project. I am actively researching the military service of several members of my family, including William Pringle. I have an active interest in military history, and would enjoy assisting others with their research into this complicated topic.
I would love to be a part of this project! I have added to my tag list and would love a new badge! I have been studying my grand fathers records and learning what I can about the Great War! My Grand Father served from 1915-1918 . George Garnet Ward (Ward-20430) started off in the 117th CEF out of Quebec. Later to be transferred to the 5th CMR.. He had originally joined and left with his cousin William Ward. Unfortunately William and George were later separated into different units. My Grandfather was shot in the chest in the Battle Of Passchendaele.. His cousin William was KIA in Ypres ...
I'd like to join the Great War project, please. I have added Burt Henning Whittle today and intend to add more collateral relatives who served in the war.
