The Jewish Lads' and Girls' Brigade (JLGB) are looking for volunteers to research the stories of soldiers who lost their lives in WWI.

The South Woodford-based charity is working in partnership with We Were There Too, a lottery-funded project that aims to preserve the impact and contribution of London's Jewish communities during the First World War era.

There were 535 JLGB members who served in the First World War and made the ultimate sacrifice.

Research can be done from the JLGB office or from home.
