Historians and Battlefield Experts:

Paul Reed‘s blog Out of Battle.

When the Welsh came to Bedford

Superbly researched website largely about the Welsh 53rd Division’s stay in Bedford and their relationship with the people of the town. Has provided me with some wonderful detail and some all important dates.

Manor Farm Zillebeke

A labour of love by the Coene family who live at Manor Farm close to the site where Bertie was killed. With in depth research it focuses on the 154th Siege Battery, and honours the men who endured life through the war while living on their farm.

Interesting Italian website: World War 1 Bridges.
