On 5 June, the University of Oxford launched the ‘Lest We Forget’ project aimed at saving and preserving material owned by the public related to WW1. They are seeking to raise £40-80k in one month (5 June – 5 July 2017) in order to train and support local volunteers around the UK to run digital collection days to try to capture all the WW1 material (diaries, letters, objects, etc) currently held by the public and in danger of being lost. The material brought in by the public will the be digitized and uploaded to a freely available web site to be launched on 11th November 2018.
