This area of the Archive features video recordings. These are either produced by HAW or the authors have kindly given permission for their use or the publication is out of copyright.

This archive has been established as a resource for students, historians and the public alike and provides short videos on items that have a particular relevance to the project or the county as a whole and to serve as a learning aid within informal educational settings.

Designed as an ongoing and updatable resource we would like to encourage students, historians, family members and history enthusiasts to contact us and become involved in contributing to this archive. As a volunteer-led community project we have relied upon the enthusiasm of our supporters to produce these short videos as well as the general public who have kindly loaned many items to us for display and documentation. If you would like to be involved in producing short videos on an item or artefact that you feel should be preserved and remembered, then please contact us.

We plan over the centenary period to develope a comprehensive database of video clips on a broad range of items such as:

  • Military unifroms and equipment
  • Medals and Decorations
  • Letters and personal effects
  • Individual family stories
  • Food and everyday items
  • Weaponry
  • Military documentation
  • Maps and photographs
  • Personal wartime stories
  • Home-front everyday items
