We have been compiling a book in aid of the charity Blind Veterans UK (formerly St Dunstans) and requesting people to submit articles about their own or their families’ memories of wartime or conflict, either serving in the military or as a civilian.
We have had a tremendous response with contributions from all parts of the globe on a wide range of topics from living through the Blitz, serving in the Falklands and Iraq, to family experiences of the Western Front in WW1.
Some are extracts from diaries, memoirs, family or military records and some are freshly written pieces, so many different styles and formats.
We want to get all contributions in by the 30th June, so just a few days left to get writing. Let us know if you are working on something for us as soon as you can by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org
