We need former Car & Wartime Factory Workers!

23 January 2012

We need your help in tracking down either former Car factory workers from the 1940's to the 1960's and WW2 Factory Workers 1939-1945 from Coventry and the surrounding area.

We very much would like to talk to you and get your memories and experiences recorded for a Film Documentary and for our forthcoming Temporary Exhibition entitled War Effort (The British Motor Industry during the Second World War).

In order to bring the exhibition to life and get it so much more realistic, we would like any relative or friend of yours to contact us so that an interview can be arranged as soon as possible.

If you know of someone who would like to be interviewed and possibly filmed, please contact either Clive Skelhon - Tel: 02476 234295 or Chris van Schaardenburgh - Tel: 02476 234282.

Thank you in advance, please call us if you can help.
