A reminder for forum users that the Sixtownships website has been updated for June.

http://www.sixtownships.org.uk

We have updated our archives with letters from soldiers on the front-line during World War One.

The letters make fascinating reading and come from the Bedlington, netherton, barrington, tyneside, choppington, alnwick, west sleekburn and other areas.

For those interested have a good read, you never know you may have family from the past having wrote letters.

Read how the use of gas by the Germans affected our soldiers, how villages were destroyed, acts of bravery, and much more, including the ultimate sacrifice, death.

You will never get a better example of life in the trenches and with it written by those who witnessed it.

No one alive today to tell the story, but these letters tell the story.

100 years next year since it all began and we aim to add more letters to our archives in the future.

If you have any letters you would like to share from loved ones from the war, put them on our forum and we will transfer them to our archives.

My grandad died from the effects of mustard gas.

Very relevant today with the American agreeing to arm the Syrian Rebels.

War is evil but there are times when we all need to stand up to the bullies of the World.

Interesting article in the Guardian a couple of weeks ago. JFK it seems made good use of pointing out what unites us and not what divides us.

Eddie Izzard does just that in his act.
