Project Description: 

Lest We Forget is a nationwide initiative, led by the University of Oxford and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, and funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, which aims to recognise and record those stories, objects, and memories from the First World War that survive - not in museum collections or history books - but in the hearts and homes of the very people and families affected.

Using a combination of online crowdsourcing and interactive events, the project collects material from the First World War held by the general public. The mateiral is archived and made publically available through the project website.
