Great War Centenary news from France 2: strangers in Calais

Amongst the many projects set up connected with the forthcoming centenary is a searchable database of all those hatched, matched and dispatched at Calais between 1914 and 1922, based upon the official registers held by the City Archives. It includes not just the native Calaisiens and Calaisiennes, but also Belgian, British and even German refugees and soldiers (not to mention a smattering of people from other countries from Portugal to Japan).
