Much of the material in the collection relates to British servicemen and units, but Americans, Australians, and some Germans
also are represented. Included are diaries, correspondence, documents, maps, photographs, reports, and some printed material.
The approximately 2,000 photographs and picture postcards (loose and in albums and scrapbooks) include many images of France,
but also other areas such as Egypt, England, German South West Africa, Iraq, and Palestine.
