1. Introduction

17% of survey complete.
Thank you for considering this online questionnaire relating to Second World War Oral History collections in the UK.

The questionnaire contains 10 questions about the purpose, size, status, and coverage of your collection(s) and the oral history recordings they include.

The information you provide will be used to complete an entry for your archive/museum/library or group on Recollections of World War II. Please view an example entry here:

If you are unable to answer any of the questions, please just move on to the next question. There are a small number of questions which do require an answer, however most are optional. Feel free to provide as much information as you like.

This is not a commercial project. It came about when, during interviews I have carried out, people occasionally mentioned that they had been interviewed before. I started wondering where those recordings were now, and discovered that there wasn't a central point of information on oral history collections including material relating to the Second World War. I hope that this site will answer that need, and that the site will provide researchers and interested parties with a useful point of reference for the future.

You will be notified when the website www.recollectionsofwwii.co.uk is updated with your details.

Thank you for your time and assistance.
