100 years ago today (July 28, 1914) marked the beginning of the Great War - World War 1.

Here is my centennial anniversary video for this somber event.
-The audio is from my Victor Red Seal record 64476 ‘It’s a Long Long Way to Tipperary’ by John McCormack- recorded on November 23, 1914.

(Double-click the video above or click this link to watch the video on YouTube in HD.)

Actually, the one record that should be mentioned and is the only true recording of WW1 is this......

Actually, my original post is a video collage accompanied by period music to remember this event- sorry it wasn't the pinnacle of all WW1 recordings, I figured it could be enjoyed nonetheless.

Absolutely, I meant adding this record to your thread. Not your collage should be essential.

Well done, Player-Tone. Would that it had really been the war to end all wars.

Some say that this recording cost Will Gaisberg his life.

He was severely gassed whilst making the recording, and when he returned to London he succumbed to the 1918 influenza pandemic. Less than a month later he died. If he had not been weakened by the gas attack he might have survived.

It seems to be so. Fred's Brother Will was inadvertently gassed while taping the track. The recording equipment was placed inside the kitchen of a bombed out house. Apparently several wagons were needed to move this equipment. However, in order to capture the sounds.....the "horns" had to be placed very close to the action.
The irony in all this....was Will gassed by "friendly" fire....??.

Regardless, without this recording....WW1 would have never been captured for posterity.
