Relatives of more than 40,000 people who passed through Folkestone on their way to war in France between 1915 and 1919 can now search for their names. Eight visitors books were kept at the Harbour Canteen and signed by some of the soldiers, nurses and others who passed through.
The pages have all been scanned and the details transcribed by volunteers. The 42,000 names in the books include Winston Churchill, David Lloyd George and Arthur Conan Doyle.
