Do you remember the Second World War?
We would like to hear from you.
The Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum is seeking Oxfordshire residents who would like to talk about their memories of the Second World War. We are carrying out a project to record the stories of Oxfordshire residents who lived through the Second World War, to ensure that your stories are recorded for posterity for future generations. The recordings are held in the Museum archive, and are made available for educational purposes, used in exhibitions and by researchers.
We are particularly interested in hearing from veterans who served during the war, so whether you served in the Army, Royal Navy or Royal Air Force; were in the ATS, WAAF or WRNS – we would like to hear from you.
The conversations normally take place at the interviewee’s home, or a location of their choice, and all interviewees receive a copy of the recording to share with their family and friends free of charge. If people would like to participate, but wish to remain anonymous, this is also possible.
We are also interested in receiving written copies of memoirs or stories if you have them.
If you are interested in being recorded for the archive, or you like to find out more please contact Matthew Smaldon at: Telephone: 01235 415922 (please leave a message if there is no answer) or via the Museum: 01993 810210.
