RAF Museum to digitise WW1 material

From the Federation of Family History Societies (www.ffhs.org.uk):

Culture24 have announced that the RAF Museum is to digitise thousands of World War I archive records for 1914-18 centenary.

The Hendon-based museum has received £64,000 from the Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund to digitise, preserve and provide public access to around 300,000 First World War personnel records as part of a new permanent exhibition exploring the 1914-18 conflict.
