Telegraph seeks to gather WW2 memories of readers before it is too late


Tales of heroism from the Second World War and the tail end of the British Empire have long been a highly readable staple of the Telegraph obituaries section.
Now the paper has launched a new project to collate the memories of its readers from the period who are still alive, before it is too late.
The Telegraph is taking as its peg the 70th anniversary this week of Neville Chamberlain’s Munich agreement which rubber stamped Hitler’s invasion of Czechoslovakia – as Simon Heffer puts it in Churchillian style today, “one of the most shameful moments in the history of these islands”.
The Telegraph has commissioned a ten-part series from historian Andrew Roberts and invited readers to email or post in their memories from the conflict.
