An online tribute to two counties’ estimated 25,000 First World War fallen has been launched by a regional publisher.
The site allows readers to add biographical details to the individual pages of those from Norfolk and Suffolk who died in the conflict, as well as photographs and tributes.
Said David: “Once we’d published the names of the fallen in a special newspaper supplement it seemed nonsense to think that would be the end of it after all the hard work that went in to collating them.
“Hopefully, therefore, this is a great example of how print and digital platforms can work alongside each other.
“From an editorial point of view all we have to do is set up the mechanism and give it publicity, the public will then either get behind it or not.
“If enough people do get behind this, it could potentially give us the content for another print supplement.”
The project has initially been launched by the EDP and Evening News, with the Daily Times and Star set to follow in due course.
