Non-combatants WW1 oral histories (BMAG)

Started reading through BMAG's WW1 oral histories and finding them fascinating. They're now available online. The first few are on the link below and more will be posted. They're available to read online or as podcasts. Reading them online requires a little bit of patience - quite a few 'ums' and 'errs' etc - but recommended. If you want to read online click on the 'download' at the end of each person's summary. Viv.

Vivienne, a thoughtful & interesting posting,

The "non-combatants" certainly did their "bit" & thoroughly deserve their place in our History (& our Hearts)
