Introduction

This blog is aimed at supporting the Oneard Christian Soldiers project, which looks to preserve, collate and contextualise the World War Two experiences of men and women of Christain faith in the services.

There has been no significant academic work done on how the war affected Christian faith in the UK.  I am currently undertaking this work in the form of a PhD thesis at the University of Birmingham to address this gap in our knowledge and understanding.  This heads been ongoing for two years, entirely self-funded whilst holding down a full-time job.

i would love to Herat from anyone who could help me find letters, diaries, reminiscences or veterans from e time.  Also, if anyone knows of sources of financial support for this project, please get in touch.  Even £1 helps to pay for a book or an archive visit.

feelmfree to read my postings and add anything you think may have of interest.
