Default WW1 Research Tips

This thread is for research tips and links to useful websites and databases. Please add any more that you know of. No doubt there will be more websites and databases launched over the next few months, and very likely sites such as ancestry and findmypast will be offering free access to some of their databases at some time, so please post up any such news you come across.
