Welcome to The Wartime Memories Project Timecapsule
Over the last 15 years we have often been asked if we will collect and preserve stories from other conflicts, as resources and funding are scarce, this something we have felt unable to do until now. As we commemorate those who fought in the Great War, we have also been looking at the way in which remembrance has changed in last 100 years. In light of this, we have decided to create a time capsule to allow those involved in other conflicts to record their experiences. We would like to hear from those who were on the front line and the families watching from a distance.
Please use this form to add details and stories of those who served in conflicts after 1945 to our Timecapsule. All information submitted will be held in the Timecapsule until a suitable anniversary of the war, when they may be included in an online feature or exhibition.
If you have a query or question, please use the email link below instead, this timecapsule will not be opened for many years so queries will remain unanswered.
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.
Please include the name of the Service and of possible the Regiment/Ship/Squadron etc. for those who served. If they were a civilian please put Civilian in the service field This form is used for all submissions from all pages of the site, we are unable to tell which the page you were viewing when you completed it so please insert names of regiments/ships/squadrons and pow camps in the relevant boxes as appropriate.
