Remembrance Day 2017 is fast approaching and the Advertiser is seeking personal stories – which have not been shared with us before – to complement our coverage.

Did you serve with the armed forces? Or was one of your ancestors a soldier, nurse, or home front worker?

Whether modern or historic stories, we would love to hear from you, and tales from less well known conflicts are also welcome, as are experiences of non-combat roles, such as from young people who are cadets, or adults who work with veterans.

If you would like to share a story, please contact Beth Wyatt by emailing bethany.wyatt@archant.co.uk or calling 020 8477 3988.

Our coverage will also include publicising commemorative services due to take place around the borough on Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day.

For more information on the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal 2017, keep an eye on the website as events are announced: britishlegion.org.uk.
