The aim of Durham Light Infantry.net is to collate information on the men who served with the 6th battalion of the Durham Light Infantry during World War One.  http://www.durhamlightinfantry.net/index.cfm

There is also an excellent listing for the Durham Light Infantry at http://www.1914-1918.net/dli.htm  This page is dedicated to the memory of men like John Settrey, who enlisted on the day war was declared but who was later discharged after being found to suffer from epilepsy; Simpson Shield, a miner who trained with 23rd (Reserve) Battalion and was later transferred to a Tunnelling Company of the Royal Engineers; Joseph Turnbull, an old soldier who served with 2nd Battalion, eventually becoming a Sergeant-Instructor; and John Webster, who served with 1/7th Battalion before transfer to the Machine Gun Corps.  All of these men were researched in detail by Chris Baker at fourteeneighteen.

A further website is at http://durhamlightinfantry.webs.com/ has lots of interesing stories and photographs.  Do check them all out if you have ancestors connected with the Durham Light Infantry.
