Dear WHT readers,

It was great to hear from so many of you regarding our recent request for outbreak of World War Two accounts.

During the process I spoke to countless numbers of fascinating people, with fantastic memories of the time, with quite remarkable stories to tell.

It was indeed a pleasure meeting some of you and hearing about that era, which was so important to so many people.

Not only this, but it was also inspiring to read the tales that people sent in via letter.

Often the anecdotes were so vivid and vast it was difficult to sum these up into a story simply about the declaration.

However I hope that the final piece somehow does the period, and people's memories, justice.

Anyway thanks for everyone who participated, even if your account didn't make the paper, due to space, it was very much appreciated.

We're in the process of uploading all the letters on to our website, so go to www.whtimes24.co.uk and take a look at what people had to say in full.

Thanks again,

Reporter Simon Wesson and the WHT team.
