World War 2 Two II WW2 WWII

Please tell us your story:

Please use this form to add details and stories of civilian life during the two World Wars 1914-18 and 1939-45. If you have a query or question, please use the email link below instead, queries entered in the input form will be deleted without reply.

To add stories about those who served in the armed forces, munitions factories, land army or other voluntary oganisations, please use this form instead.

Please note this is not a live entry system, it will take time before the submission appears on the site, thank you for your patience. If you have already submitted a story to the site and your UID reference number is higher than 213158, your information is still in the queue, please do not resubmit without contacting us first.

If you are trying to place an advert or are intending to type nonsense, please do not waste your time or ours, all submissions are checked before they appear online all rubbish is deleted.

If you do not have information for a particular field please leave it empty, inserting "Not known" or "-" only creates extra work for our volunteers. Please type your stories in full sentences and correct English. DO NOT use all CAPITALS for ANY words (except abbreviations) as entries will have to be retyped and this will delay the processing. We have a very large backlog and entries which are in capital letters will not be processed until the backlog has been cleared.

If you have a question or a reply to an existing query please use the email link below, NOT this form. Thank you.

Questions submitted on this form will not be answered, if you are not yet ready to submit a story have a single question or are looking for general information, please post it on our Wartime Memories Facebook Page

If you are looking for assistance with research, please read our Family History FAQ's before emailing.

If you have already submitted information about a particular person via this form or previously on our old form or by email, please do not re-enter it. We have a very large backlog and all material submitted will be added to the site as soon as possible. Duplicate entries only slow things down further.

Required fields are marked *

Surname:             * Of the person in the story.
First Name:         
Middle Name(s):
Home:                 Wartime address/town/village

Please tell us any tales of incidents or life during the war, we would love to hear any funny stories, your friends, dramatic events, sad events etc. Please enter your story exactly as you would like to it see it displayed on the website, writing in full sentences with correct captialisation (not as a letter addressed to the webmaster or in all capitals) as additional comments will need to be edited and this causes considerable delays. Please do not include any confidential information such as telephone numbers or current home address.

Please do not use this form for questions or corrections, please email us instead.

Please do not copy and paste large chunks of text from other websites, unless you are the owner of the website in question. Thank you.
