Story

Davey McCallion, Curator of War Years Remembered writes:

I don’t want anyone to think we have been ignoring them it’s just been flat out and a very long day yesterday and even longer night this is literally the first I have sat down.

Heaters have been burning constant since yesterday items lifted displays cleared mopping brushing drying etc.

So I hope you understand as the charities and my first responsibility is the collection it’s preservation and protection.

It will be a few more days of tidying and having the heat and burners on full blast around the clock, our largest concern at present is the costs as we are not prepared for the recent spate of events.

I can only tell you how hard it is seeing the condition of the items the displays that has been such a joy and honour to complete showing how our families history and how they lived during the war years.

We do need your help and advice.

    Hello Sorry for the delay in thanking you all, due to commitments here & the collection coming first. I have only got the chance to physicaly go down the list of 117 supporters. Thank you so much for wanting to help save this unique collection by donating to preserve our veterans personal history. It has been a battle & in some ways it has affected me in more ways than i could of imagined, worrying about whats next, what is the priority etc etc. Your donations are helping but your kind words have given me hope & without hope we have nothing.
