Waterloo Lives - project completed

Updated at: 

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Waterloo Lives project. With your dedication and help the project has now been completed. A small percentage of the scans were locked as they had been tagged as either blank pages or too difficult to read.

The team at the National Army Museum is working to validate your transcripts. They will then be added to our collection database and allow future researchers to search the material for areas of interest.

Due to the nature of the task, it wasn’t possible for participants to browse or transcribe scans in order. For those interested, this link will allow you to access and read the scanned material online.

Thank you all once again.
