World War I “Blogger”

Bill Lamin from London, England found the letters his grandfather wrote during World War I a couple of years ago. He decided to share these letters with the world via a blog. He is posting each letter 90 years to the day after it was written. This way the world not only shares in some great history, but can do so in “real time”. He hasn’t even revealed if his grandfather survived the war. You have to check in to see if there is a new letter each day.

    I hope his handwriting is good, I’m thinking that as Bill Lamin himself is posting the letters, could that be a slight clue as to whether or not his grandfather survived?
