Word of warning. This site is addictive!

I thought I would have a quick browse and spent well over an hour looking at some fascinating articles such as the scottish woman Sargeant Flora Sands who actually fought in WW1 with the Serbian army. She led the attack and was injured by a grenade. She describes, from her hospital bed, what happened and how one of her men pulled her to safety by her broken arm.
It was interesting to note that the article was dated the 12 December but wasn't printed until the 30th (1916)
