What did Grandad do during the war? As Remembrance Sunday comes round again, we at Tiscali would like to celebrate and commemorate the struggles of all those involved in the World Wars. We'd like to create an archive of wartime accounts and images for you to share with family and friends. Can you help us? We would love to hear the stories that your grandparents or even great-grandparents have passed down to you. The heroics of being a pilot in the air-force or remembering those long evenings, huddled underground during the Blitz. We're especially keen to hear from children who've sat down and discussed (perhaps for the first time) the 1939-45 conflict with their grandparents or great-grandparents. If you would like to share your grandparents' wartime stories, please email us, remembering to include your name and your grandparents' name. If you have any pictures you would like to see published, please include these in the email as well, with as much detail relating to the images as possible. If you would like to go one step further and film an interview with your grandparent/s, please send us the completed footage in either DV, MiniDV, DVD or SVCD. If you would like the tape or disc returned, please include a SAE and a daytime telephone number. Please send your tapes and discs to: Tiscali c/o Steve Best 20 Broadwick Street London W1F 8HT
