THE CENTRE NEEDS YOU!
There are only 5-10 years left for the Centre to maximise its collection, before a great deal of the material and testimony will have been lost. This imperative brings with it the urgent need for help in identifying and preserving material and capturing oral memories. Ironically the team at the Centre has to battle the quite erroneous assumption that material from this relatively recent period is of no historical significance or value. If you have Second World War documentation, memorabilia or memories - either relating to your own wartime experience or that of a family member or friend - we would be delighted to hear from you. You can either donate the material or deposit it on 'fixed-term renewable loan' and we will ensure that it is properly cared for.
The main subject areas covered by the collection are:

Appeal for Scottish Contact
The Second World War Experience Centre at Horsforth, Leeds, exists to document the lives of men and women who lived through the 1939-1945 years. More than seven thousand people now have their youth covered in the Centre by original documents, memorabilia and memories. It is an international archive keenly concerned to welcome contact with people who might be able to contribute to the Centre’s work –men and women from all walks of life and from all nations. Scottish representation is particularly strong but is under represented in shipyard, heavy industry, factory and fishermen experiences.
