Doncaster 1914–18 marks the centenary of the First World War. The project encourages Doncaster people and those with connections to the area to research and share their own stories.
A series of events, exhibitions and a new website will explore the role the town, its people, and the King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, played in the conflict, both at home and on the front line.
