An online museum has been created to show the contribution of civil engineers to Britain’s First World War campaign.
The Institution of Civil Engineers has created ICE compendium WW1 to show how engineers designed and adapted infrastructure to support military efforts during the war, which started 100 years ago next month.
The compendium includes a collection of photos, accounts, designs, journal entries and lectures. A memorial volume also provides biographies and photos of all ICE members who died in active service or by enemy action.
ICE president Geoff French said: “ICE members helped deliver the critical infrastructure and shelter that supported British military operations during the First World War.
“It is right that we recognise their engineering expertise but more importantly, the sacrifice they made for the British people. Our WW1 compendium not only informs those eager to learn more about the fighting front but honours the contribution of civil engineers to an allied victory.”
