Battle of the Atlantic

Last weekend, Liverpool marked the 70th anniversary of The Battle of the Atlantic. If you attended any events, such as the the Royal Marines Band concert at the Philharmonic Hall, or watched the skies as a Spitfire and Hurricane flew over the waterfront, or simply went to check out some of the warships at The Albert Dock, then we want to hear your stories, see your photographs and watch your videos, here on People's Stories. 

Or if you're a bigger fan of the arts, perhaps you attended Liverpool Light Night a couple of weeks ago, and experienced some of the best culture that the city has to offer in a range of wonderful events, such as Samba in The City, the re-opening of Liverpool Central Library, or a host of other demonstrations and performances in one of many museums in the area.

Yes, whatever you got up to in the jam-packed month of May (the lucky ones would have seen as much as possible!), we want to know about and see as many of your memories as possible!

Thank you all and have a brilliant end to the month and beginning to the new!

Lest We Forget

With just over two weeks to go until the commemoration events for The Battle of the Atlantic begin in Liverpool, People's Stories anticipates potential stories and memories to be recalled, hoping to hear about what it must have been like to experience the campaign firsthand, be you merchant, military or civilian. 

As well as that, we would love to hear what events you plan on attending during the commemoration, which runs between the 24th and 27th May. The 70th anniversary is hosting a range of events, including a parade and fly-past, a Charity Royal Marines Band concert at the Philharmonic Hall, and up to 25 ships from a host of different countries to converge on the city - will you be attending any of the events, or perhaps all of them? If so, please do remember to take plenty of wonderful photographs and upload them to the site!

Thank you for reading and be well!
