Why is it a long way to Tipperary?

After a late night drinking session and a five shilling wager, one of the popular songs that defined Britain in the First World War was born.

It's a Long Way to Tipperary was written and first performed a 100 years ago today.

The BBC's Nick Ravenscroft reports on the history of the song.

“The Chechia.” A Screamingly Funny Journal by the First Zouave Regiment - Number 24, February 1, 1916

Description - La Chéchia is the trench journal published by the First Zouave Regiment of the French army during World War I. Trench journals were produced by and for soldiers and were known for their black humor, portrayal of life on the front lines, poems, drawings, and other features. The Zouaves were an elite military unit first formed in Algeria in 1830, and the journal took its name from the distinct cylindrical cap of Arab origin worn by its soldiers. A total of 73 issues of La Chéchia appeared between May 1915 and October 1918, during which time the First Zouaves saw fierce combat in many of the battles on the Western Front in Belgium and France. Each issue was illustrated, and ran to four pages. The journal was produced on a cyclostyle, an early device for duplicating handwriting. The print run varied from between 800 and 1,000 copies. The First Zouaves were also known for their theatrical performances at the front, the scripts for which were mostly published in La Chéchia. Presented here are 71 issues of the journal, beginning with issue 2 of June 1, 1915, which are preserved in the National Library of France. Included in the collection is a handwritten note from Lieutenant Colonel Rolland, commander of the regiment, dated April 12, 1916, conveying a package with issues of the journal to an unidentified correspondent. In his note, Rolland writes: “I am also sending you a copy of the revue Au clair de la lune [By the light of the moon], which my soldiers wrote and which was played whenever we came out of the trenches. Later, I will send you the more or less literary productions that we might still have.” Included in the collection is a menu dated October 18, 1915, for a dinner given for the authors and actors of the revue Au clair de la lune.

Discovering Latvian Roots - 'Tips, research assistance and more to help you find your Latvian ancestors'

WW1 Diary – February 1, 1916

Fifteenth installment from the diary of my great-grandfather’s sister Alise, written during the First World War. When the diary starts, she is living just a few miles from the front lines of the Eastern Front, and is then forced to flee with her husband and two young daughters to her family’s house near Limbaži as the war moves even closer. For the background, see http://www.celmina.com/genealogy/2012/06/diary-entry-june-24-1915/ , click on the tag “diary entries” to see all of the entries that I have posted.

February 1, 1916 - We are still living in the room that held the dreams of my youth… the battles are taking their horrible turns. Even around here they are gathering materials to build trenches, so it seems that the worst is yet to come, and we’ll have to flee again and leave Father’s home, everything is horribly expensive and getting even more so, even soap costs 50 kopecks already. Homes and work are also nowhere to be found. Without those, hard days come before nights. God only knows, what will happen in today’s conditions? Thanks be to God that we are still healthy. Trūtiņa is a sweet and gentle girl, Dagmāra, on the contrary, is very assertive and strong. I only wish that there would be enough bread for the little ones, that would be wonderful.
