Poppyscotland is on the lookout for veterans from every conflict since 1939 for an ambitious new project that will capture these precious stories in a series of interviews.

The Veterans’ Voices project, which is being funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, will seek out veterans the length and breadth of Scotland in a bid to compile a definitive dossier of interviews to cover each and every conflict over the past 80 years.

Gordon Michie, Head of Fundraising at Poppyscotland, said: “Veterans’ Voices will be a unique resource of high-quality film archive of interviews with veterans living in Scotland of military conflict from 1939 to the present day.

"Our ambition is to capture as many of these personal recollections so that their stories can live on.

“We aim to have an interview with at least one veteran from every conflict where the British Armed Forces have been stationed since 1939.

“It is important that these stories are captured now before they can no longer be shared, ensuring greater understanding for future generations."

If you are a veteran and would welcome the chance to tell your story, please contact Veterans’ Voices researcher Hannah Uttley on 07833 750 937, or at veteransvoices@poppyscotland.org.uk
