This website Join me in the 1900s is a contribution to the social history of everyday life in 20th century Britain from the early 1900s to about 1960, seen through personal recollections and illustrations, with the emphasis on what it was like to live in those times.

Old films and photographs of the mud, discomfort, disease, mutilations and death in the trenches on the fighting fronts are well known.

Yet, this Christmas card for the troops is understandably totally positive. It shows no fighting, only a single soldier with sunshine ahead.
