I'm a post-graduate student looking for detailed information on British Home Children from the Middlemore Home who may have served in the Great War, 1914 to 1918. I have gone through both their case files as well as their military service records, but what I need to really make a connection to these boys are former diaries and letters from the front, if they have survived. Ultimately, I would like to answer the question as to why so many of them enlisted. Patriotism aside, a fair number looked at war as an opportunity to return to their former Birmingham homes and to reconnect with lost relatives. Any help would be appreciated.
