My WWI started when I learned about my family history. My original interest in history started when my parents took me when I was little to the US National WW2 museum about an hour away from where I live. Since then I have been incredibly interested in Military history. My interest in WWI started when I found out I had some veterans on the British side of my family. One was a minesweeper in the Royal Navy, another a pilot, another in the Medical Corps, and a couple others in the infantry. There were so many stories from them and from there I just went with it. For some reason I’ve been really drawn to the Battle of Passchendaele. I just find that one especially interesting.
