In light of this, we have decided to create a Timecapsule to allow those involved in other conflicts to record their experiences.

  • 29th Jan 2014: News Release: Life on the Home Front

    To mark the Centenary of the First World War, The Wartime Memories Project, based in Stockton, is launching its new initiative 'Life on the Home Front'. Funded through a £33,800 Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant, the project will create an online interactive archive which will allow everyone to share digital copies of memorabilia and artefacts they have at home, dating from this important period in history. The online collection will shed light on the affect the conflict had on the local community.

    Items sought for the archive include diaries, documents, newspaper clippings, postcards, photographs, letters and other ephemera. Visitors to the site will also be able to contribute extra information about the objects displayed and help build a picture of life in Britain 100 years ago and the dramatic changes brought about by the War.

    The group, is pleased with the response of the public so far: "During the testing phase, we have been sent a few items for inclusion. Amongst those items we've already received is a wonderfully detailed diary covering the day-to-day experiences of a married soldier, from the day he enlisted to his medical discharge after a lengthy stay in hospital as a result of wounds received in action. His family are very proud to share his story via our project and we hope others will be as enthusiastic in sharing their family experiences."

    Ivor Crowther, Head of the Heritage Lottery Fund North East, said: "We all know about the major battles that formed such a devastating part of the First World War but often it's easy to overlook the individual stories of the men and women who sacrificed so much. By collecting and digitising people's personal family artefacts, including amazing pieces such as the soldier's diary, we are able to get a real insight into what wartime life was like. We are committed to helping local people share their stories and we have already invested more than £45million in projects, large and small, that are marking the Centenary.

  • 4 Jan 2014 - Today we have added 218 new stories to the website, thanks to everyone who has submitted information and to our volunteers for checking and preparing the stories and photos for display online.

  • 8 Mar 05 -The Wartime Memories Project has been successful in securing a grant from The National Lotteries - Home Front Recall. This grant has enabled the project to purchase state of the art video and audio recording equipment, ensuring that any memories recorded are preserved in the best possible digital quality. The grant also provides some funding to allow our volunteers to visit more people who wish to contribute their memories, over the coming year. The grant will also cover the post production costs incurred for an educational DVD made from the recollections. The first pressing of these will be free to schools.(Numbers of free dvds will be dependent on the best deal we can strike for pressing). There will also be up to 25 events arranged (spread over the year) at various venues, where we intend to bring veterans and school children together, learning first hand what it was like to live through those austere and dangerous times. Although this funding is fantastic for the project it does not cover any of the web site costs, we still need your donations to keep the site going. Nor does the funding cover accommodation costs, as things stand at present it looks as though our volunteers will have to carry these costs. Unless that is, anyone out there has any contacts or ideas to help the project overcome the problem. The project is actively seeking persons to interview, especially those with Home Front memories. If you lived through the war years and have a tale or two to tell, we would love to hear from you.

Over the last four years this website, thanks to its visitors, has made several people very happy, old friends have been put back in touch, others have been contacted by relatives of their wartime comrades or renewed lost contact with evacuees they took care of during the war.

We would like to interview on camera anyone who lived through the Second World War or those who have conducted indepth research into wartime activities.

Any moneys generated by these recordings will be used to futher this project. If you have not yet added your recollections please consider doing so, many of those who have, have found it a rewarding experience.

  • 27 September 2000 - It seems that the mailing list has gone the same way as the old guest book and message board. The new mailing list will be managed by Listbot; a much more reliable service. Unfortunately this does mean that if you subscribed to the old service, you will need to add your e-mail address again.
  • 18 September 2000 - New Message Board and Guestbook added, previous host seems to have withdrawn the service without notification. We will retrieve the old messages (if possible) and add them to the new boards. If you have left a message which has been lost, please feel free to post it again.
