World War I Chaplains

World War I broke out in August 1914. Although unlike their counterparts in France and Belgium exempt from military duty, by the end of the war 84 Jesuits had served as RC Chaplains to the British Forces and Navy. Here is a small online exhibition which looks at some of the records relating to these Chaplains which have survived in the Jesuits in Britain Archives.
