Operation War Diary progress

I previously posts on Operation War Diary, a joint online crowdsourcing project between The National Archives, Imperial War Museums and Zooniverse.

A blog post War diaries reveal challenges of the world’s first industrialised war, from TNA informs that the project has been running for eight weeks, and "incredibly over 10,000 people across the globe have already volunteered, tagging around 50,000 names, places and activities in the first 200 war diaries. This is the equivalent to someone working 40 hours a week for four years – an amazing achievement! But we’ve still got some way to go to tag the thousands of diaries so I’d encourage everyone to sign up to Operation War Diary to be part of this important part of history."

A second batch of 3,987 digitised First World War unit war diaries from France and Flanders went online last Thursday and it available for tagging via the First World War 100 portal.
