For 4 ½ years, Walter Draycott’s diary entries from WWI will be released on this blog exhibit. The Great War Chronicle posts reveal everyday where Lynn Valley pioneer Walter Draycott was, what he was doing and what he was feeling during the conflict. This exhibit allows you to experience day-to-day the life in the trenches of a WWI soldier.
