We are in the process of creating a website dedicated to Liverpool people who where connected to either of the two world wars. We are hoping that people will submit a short story about their ancestor. You can add more than one ancestor, but please add them single as the list is alphabetical. you can include a photo with your story.
If you only know your ancestors name and they they served in the wars, then please add their name and we will credit it to you.
served during WW2
submitted by his great nephew Jack Hughes.
Your ancestor does not have had to have died in the wars, they can have served and come back home, been prisoners of war, Merchant Navy. home guard, air wardens, police firemen on duty, victims of bombing etc. anything that connects them to the wars and to Liverpool is fine.
We are also hoping to find stories about women during the wars, nurses, munitions workers, again anything that connects them to Liverpool and the wars. When we say connects to Liverpool we want anyone born or living in Liverpool at some time, or people who where stationed or worked in Liverpool.
Anything you submit will be credited to yourself. The site will not be profit making and no charges apply to anyone. It is there to honour and remember the people of Liverpool during the two world wars. We have had a good response so far so please be patient with us and we will reply to you. The site is not online yet, we are looking at 4-5 weeks before it is up and running. Once it is online you can still submit your ancestors.
