    Default Wartime Website Again

    Hi All

    Liverpool Wartime Website http://liverpoolremembrance.weebly.com/

    I am posting it again as it seems to have slackened off. I am trying to get interest in it again and bring it to peoples attention.

    You can add anyone who served/died/worked or lived during either of the two world wars.

    You can add anyone from Liverpool/Sefton/Knowsley/St Helens or the Wirral. Anywhere on Merseyside.

    We want stories of Evacuees, People who worked here firefighters/airwardens etc/ Servicemen who either died or came back home/Prisoner of war either our boys abroad or Germans/Italians over here/ basically anyone.

    We would love stories of Woman during the war years. Go ask you older rellies for stories on them and the men.

    were you a child during the war? do you have any stories to share?

    If you only know a little on someone you would like to add then that is ok. we can add them under just a name.

    You can also add photos of the person you are adding if you have any.


    ADVERTISING




    Look at the site and see how stories have been set out, then you can decide if you want to add anyone.

    Please tell your friends and family about the site and help it to grow.

    Cheers

    Tony and Ged

    The one signed by a certain well known person is a great one, not seen many of them.

    You have one of the saddest photos I have ever seen there Squiggs, something that should never be forgotten.

    Just a bit of work then we can let them know on here.

    I would have to agree that "that" photo should never be forgotton Spike !, it was the last one of a set taken by my father in law and when we looked at them we got the shock of our lives at seeing the final one !.
    I can only assume that to get a letter like that he would have had to do something very brave !.

    Squiggs All uploaded now. Thank you, brilliant things you have sent on there.

    Ok people get looking.

    Two very interesting additions with great pics.

    Squiggs dad John " Jack Hughes, and Father-in-law Eric Cole

    John " Jack Hughes http://liverpoolremembrance.weebly.c...names-g-k.html Scroll to half way

    Eric Cole http://liverpoolremembrance.weebly.c...names-a-c.html Close to bottom of page

    Eric took many photograhs during the war. One is included here of a mass grave at Belsen. It is graphic so warning is given here that it may upset you to see it. I think it needs to be added for its historical importance...Lest We Forget this ever happened. Also added is an Award to Eric signed by" Monty "

    Eric snapped a lot in Germany in 1945 you can see them here http://liverpoolremembrance.weebly.c...otographs.html


    Thank you Squiggs for submitting them. I am proud to have them on there.
