This is Dundee's story of those that served in the First World War, and of the people left at home
The interactive Roll of Honour is now live!
We’re excited to annouce that our interactive Roll of Honour is now live! Traditionally, a Roll of Honour commemorates those who paid the ultimate sacrifice however, with this ambitious project, we’re aiming to tell the stories of every Dundonian who experienced The Great War. Visitors will be able to search records for information relating to those who fought and fell, those who survived, and even those who experienced the First World War on the Home Front.
Creating an interactive Roll of Honour like this is major undertaking; as you’ll see, some records are fuller than others, some records may even be incorrect, and in some cases, some men have even been missed off the official Roll of Honour entirely, but we’d like to rectify this! We’re looking for information, photographs, and family memories to tell these stories. We’ve already had some fantastic contributions from members of the public, local history groups, and researchers. We’d love for the Dundee public to share information about their family member’s experiences of the First World War. Using this information, we hope to create a lasting and fitting tribute to those of the city who contributed to Dundee’s efforts during the Great War.
