We Were There is Imperial War Museums’ remarkable programme where visitors can meet real life veterans and eyewitnesses of war. Read their online profiles to discover more about the people behind the stories.
All our eyewitnesses and veterans are volunteers, who give their time to share these important stories. They have a wide range of stories - from being evacuated during the Second World War, to living through The Troubles in Northern Ireland, serving in the Royal Navy during the Falklands War and more.
We Were There takes place during selected school holidays.
