Information for Veterans and their families.
Featuring requests for information, personal accounts, pictures and links

Can you help with some new academic research? If you have used social media to engage with a museum/curator/collection, I would love to hear from you! I'm also interested in anyone who has taken part in a crowdsourcing project like the IWM Lives of the First World War. Get in touch via the contact page here or take my short 7 question survey at SurveyMonkey.

Thank you!

Welcome to WWII Memories

This site is dedicated to my father and mother and the many others who served in the forces, were PoWs or had any kind of first hand experience of living through World War II.

Would you like me to add a page to this site for a member of your family?  Do you have memories that you would like to share?   If so, please do not hesitate contact me (all work is done free of charge of course).

Please do not forget to let me know when you either hear from a reader of this site with regard to information on your family or regiment, or if you discover further details that may aid your search.
