Thousands are returning to William Henry Bonser "Harry" Lamin's blog to see when the next letter from this British WWI soldier will reveal. The letters are being posted exactly 90 years after they were written, people returning to read each new letter, wondering when the bitter news of his death will arrive.

Bill Lamin, a 59-year-old IT teacher found his grandfather's letters when he was a boy, and has now decided to turn them into a blog.

"There are a lot of people saying how keen they are to follow him and are rooting for Harry," said Bill Lamin.

"They get hooked as if it is happening now. People are rooting for a guy who is in the thick of it."

This is a great way to make history come alive for a new generation.
