This week saw the launch of the Serving Soldier project at Kings College, London.
The project is providing online access to unique original documents and photographs held by the Liddell Hart Centre for Military Archives.
The project takes the multi-faceted role of the soldier as its central theme: Exposing a proportion of little known material (hidden stories) and provide a body of material of contemporary relevance to researchers, students and today’s serving soldiers.
Furthermore, the project has also commissioned and produced a play which was performed at Shrivenham Officers training camp.
The play entitled ‘Fighting Your Corner’ draws on historical collections (diaries, reports and first had accounts) relating to previous conflicts in Afghanistan.
